Friday Grants Clinic


The Friday Grants Clinic is a two-hour working technical assistance session for current federal grantees and/or organizations planning to apply for federal grants. We roll up our sleeves and help you work through any issues you’re facing—big or small.

Attendance is limited to six people per session to allow for a deep small group conversation. Participants will learn not only from the session moderator, Dave Farley, but also from the other attendees’ experiences.

The Friday Grants Clinic is held via conference call. Upon registration, you will receive the conference call-in instructions as well as a pre-call questionnaire form. The questionnaire helps us better understand your needs and allows us to prepare for our conversation.
