Grant Writing Technical Assistance Workshop to Empower

 Chemung County

Nonprofits and Local Government Entities


Chemung County, [December 18, 2023] — The Chemung County Planning Department is excited to announce an upcoming Grant Writing Technical Assistance Workshop, designed to empower nonprofits and government entities who serve Chemung County in their work to craft competitive grant proposals. This workshop offers two date choices, both scheduled at the Steele Memorial Library. The first session is set for Wednesday, January 17, from 5:00 to 6:30 pm, and the second session will be held on Thursday, January 18, from 12:00 to 1:30 pm.

The workshop will provide attendees with essential tips and guidance to develop strong and comprehensive grant proposals. Participants will gain valuable insights into the Foundation Directory Online (FDO) services, now offered free of charge to Chemung County nonprofits and government organizations (by appointment only) with the Chemung County Planning Department. FDO is a powerful online database that streamlines grant research and identifies funding opportunities, offering detailed profiles of grantmakers and enabling organizations to connect with funders whose missions align with their objectives.

During the workshop, attendees will delve into successful grant writing techniques and gain a comprehensive understanding of FDO, acquiring the skills to utilize its resources effectively with the help of the Chemung County Grants Manager. Additionally, the session will explore the New York State Consolidated Funding Application (CFA), providing practical suggestions to enhance the competitiveness of grant applications.

Chemung County nonprofits or government entities interested in attending the Grant Writing Technical Assistance workshop, gaining access to Foundation Directory Online (FDO), acquiring additional information about the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) process, or seeking personalized one-on-one grant writing technical assistance are urged to reach out to the Chemung County Grants Manager, via email at

Appointments to receive individualized grant writing support or to access the FDO will be arranged on a case-by-case basis, contingent upon availability.

Chemung County is committed to fostering the growth and prosperity of our community. The Grant Writing Technical Assistance Workshop, coupled with the accessibility of Foundation Directory Online, represents a significant investment in the success of local organizations and municipalities.
