The Northern Interior Communities Association (NICA) and the Cariboo Regional District Grant Writer program will co-host a grant writing workshop for community groups, organizations and charities from the Cariboo Chilcotin.
The event will take place on Sept. 14 and 15, in the City of Williams Lake council chambers.
The workshop and the one-on-one sessions are free and light refreshments will be available.
On Friday, Sept. 14 from 7 to 9 p.m., NICA will provide a two-hour presentation on grant writing.
Groups can also register for a 30-minute one-on-one session with NICA staff members, which will be held the following day, Sept. 15, between 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.
The workshop will focus on how to write successful applications for the BC Community Gaming Grants program and its current intake for the human and social services sector.
The deadline for grant applications to this program is Nov. 30. The session will also provide valuable grant writing basics which can be applied to all funding program applications.
Community groups and organizations planning on attending are encouraged to bring along applications in progress, or previously completed submissions to receive feedback on how to improve their grant writing techniques.
