Grant Resource Center
The information within this section is designed to assist you with searching for grant opportunities and writing grants that are more likely to be funded. If you need further assistance or have any questions about grant writing or the materials resourced here, please contact Michelle Klinger at Michelle@c4npr.org or 419.241.9513.
The Center hosts a Greater Toledo Area Grant Writers Network group for anyone finding themselves writing grants for their organization. This is an opportunity to network, talk about possible collaborations and discuss what's working and what's not working in the grant world. This group meets every other month and you can view upcoming meeting dates and details by visiting the calendar page.
