Humboldt Do you know how that playground equipment at the park down the street was purchased? Or the new sign leading visitors to a local landmark? How about initial money for a festival? In any community, chances are that someone, or a group of individuals, wrote a grant proposal and received funding to help with the project.
Individuals and community groups can learn more about writing successful grant proposals at a workshop planned in Humboldt on Friday, Nov. 9. The workshop is presented by Nancy Daniels, a community vitality specialist with K-State Research and Extension and the author of many grant proposals. The training will be at the Humboldt Public Library, 916 Bridge St., from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and includes lunch. The cost to attend is $10.
This workshop is for everyone, whether theyve never written a proposal before and have no idea where to start, to those who have experience but are looking for ways to improve their approach, Daniels said. The magic that happens in a local community when people find out they dont have to wait to get something done, that they can do it themselves, is incredible.
