Over the past several years, opportunities for competitive grant funding have decreased and competition is more intense. In order to remain competitive in the area of grant acquisition for the purpose of increasing and improving programming to support strategic plans, staff must have a strong capacity to research grant opportunities, develop strong applications, implement effective programs, and be able to evaluate those programs for efficacy. The Grant Leadership Academy (GLA) addresses the key elements of effective grant development, including finding grant opportunities and funders, conducting needs assessments, developing sustainable programs, planning for evaluation and performance measurement, and developing a budget.
Allegheny Intermediate Unit is now offering its successful Grant Leadership Academy to schools and IUs as a customized immersion professional development opportunity for grant teams at your location or AIU's central office. We will customize our GLA for your needs.
Fees vary depending on training delivery method, duration of training, and travel (if applicable).
