This session will review the top federal grant programs and agencies that award funding to YMCAs, take a deep dive into specific grant opportunities, and walk through the process to request Community Project Funds. Participants will also learn about emerging funding opportunities, how to prepare for federal grant opportunities, and how to improve your chances of receiving federal funding.
