Grant-Writing Training

Contact TES today! To get started with a team approach to grant writing.

The most successful organizations require all their staff to take an active role in the grant writing process. At TES we understand not everyone is a grant writer, but our goal is to empower tribal staff to work as a team and develop successful grant proposals as a team.

Oftentimes designated grant writers are left to write grants alone in their office. However a grant development team is needed to successfully identify, develop, and roll-out grants. Our training demonstrates the team approach to grant writing.

The team should consist of representatives from the department hosting the grant, Finance, Human Resources, relevant staff, partners and a Tribal member with cultural wisdom. This team will then be ready to regroup upon grant award.
