Grant Sustainability

Check back for Fall 2019 | Time and Location TBA

Innovative programs are frequently started through a grant or other one-time funding, but often dissolve once the funding ends. Learn how to continue these great programs. This full-day workshop will result in participants increasing their knowledge, understanding, and skills in program sustainability.

Who Should Attend

The workshop is designed to build skills for those who are interested in developing sustainability into program design or increasing sustainability for existing programs.

Program Description

Workshop participants will receive beginning-to-intermediate level instruction through this interactive workshop within the following:

  • How sustainability can be incorporated into the program design.
  • Strategies for developing partnerships to increase sustainability.
  • Building alternative and lasting funding sources.
  • Measuring and monitoring where your program is on the sustainability spectrum.
  • Strategies for creating buy-in and ownership by stakeholders.

Participants will also:

  • Have the opportunity to get feedback specific to their unique program challenges related to sustainability.
  • Leave with program assessment tools that can be used to guide sustainability efforts and monitor progress.
