On 12/9/14 #grantchat, we will be chatting about what happens when you start a new job or start working with a new client who has little or no grant writing experience? How do we build capacity in organizations or programs that are looking to build their grant portfolio? What are best practices for a grants office?
If you have a blog post or have an article that you would like to share about the topic, we would love for you to do so in the comment section or by using the #grantchat on the social media network of your choice.
