FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Thursday, March 6, 2003

Hudson Valley Community College will offer a grant writing workshop on Tuesday, March 18 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. that will cover the basics of how to write a grant proposal and where to look for funding. Workshop participants will learn how to present their ideas in a practical and professional manner.

The workshop will be led by John Kucij, director of the college's Workforce Development Insititute. In addition to his work on behalf of the Workforce Development Institute, Kucij has written successful grants for the Boys and Girls Club of Schenectady and the African Center of the Capital District, Inc. He also has served on the grants review committee of the Schenectady City School District.

The course is an excellent introduction for those who might consider grant writing as a way to fund projects, community initiatives, professional pursuits or any of the activities that can qualify for \"third party\" funding by government agencies or private foundations. The course will look at Internet resources, the basic components of all grant applications, and will provide dozens of helpful tips that newcomers to grant writing will benefit from learning.

The cost of the workshop is $49.
