Is Grant Writing For You?
If you’ve reached this page you’re most likely curious about what grants you could access for your business or community project or are wondering how to take your ideas and projects to the next level. With billions of dollars available each year, grants can seem to be attractive propositions but where do you start?
The Get That Grant online training program teaches you how to write a proposal and is designed to help you achieve your grant writing goals, complete with templates and checklists. If you could do an online self-paced training program that uses techniques proven to bring in $1million in 18 months, for less than the price it costs for a consultant to write one application, would you be interested?
Introducing Get That Grant – The Grant Winning Success Formula.
The Get That Grant program will enable you to write proposals and encourage your success. The Get That Grant – Grant Winning Success Formula online training program is specially designed to help with your grant writing needs now and in the future. It is based on over 25 years of experience, on two hemispheres, on both sides of the funding fence. Kick start your grant writing journey today and you too, can Get That Grant!
