Basics of Grant Writing
The course Basics of Grant Writing will guide participants through the basic steps of grant writing. Participants will learn how to locate and use funding source directories, develop an idea from abstraction to a well-articulated written proposal requesting financial support, organize and write a proposal or grant application eligible for submission, and develop a budget consistent with proposal objectives. The course will also cover Miami-Dade County Public Schools procedures and guidelines for grant submission. Participants must register through the Professional Development (PD) Menu and Registration System. The course includes 6 hours of contact and 1 hour of follow-up for 7 Master Plan Points (MPP). In order to receive the 7 MPP, participants must identify a targeted funding source and prepare a mini-grant for submission. Within 60 days following the workshop, a copy of the mini-grant must be sent to the Workshop Facilitator. Additionally, the evaluation must be completed in order to receive MPP.

Intermediate Grant Writing
The course Intermediate Grant Writing uses group exercises, case studies, and the participant’s own proposal outline to help participants understand the components of a competitive grant proposal, including logic model and budget development. Participants must have previous experience in grant writing and must be approved to attend by one of the District Supervisors in the Grants Administration Department. Participants will leave with valuable resources and have a chance to do some hands-on experimentation with complex federal and state level grant writing processes, which will equip them to replicate the process for future grant writing opportunities applicable to their respective work locations. Upon completion, participants will have to submit an actual and complete grant proposal within the three months following this workshop in order to receive follow-up credit.
