        2008 Grant Writing Workshop Sponsored By the Los Angeles HUD Field Office
                 Special Acknowledgement to Event Host: City of Inglewood
 U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Grant Writing Workshop
                         – Los Angeles Field Office –
Overview
Communities of faith also play a special role in the building up of neighborhoods. They have
continually demonstrated a commitment to help the marginalized, fragmented and underserved
rebuild throughout our nation’s communities – especially in our inner-city neighborhoods. For
years, faith and community organizations have been faced with the task of coming up with
creative financing techniques – but often lacking in timely information, capacity-building and
organizational skill sets.
As more community organizations face the realities of dwindling resources, it is even more
important to mobilize our nation’s community organizations to address their neighborhood
needs. Both faith and community organizations should be better informed about government
programs and grants available from funding agencies and this can only be effectively done by
providing a proper training forum.
Training Goals
The overall goals of HUD’s Faith and Community Based Training Program are to:
   • Address the misconceptions surrounding faith-based and government partnerships;
   • Arm these non-profit community organization’s with practical and useful information as
      they strive to achieve economic empowerment and wealth creation in their respective
      communities;
   • Educate faith and community organizations about the opportunities to participate in the
      Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) programs;
   • More importantly, provide community-based-organizations with the necessary grant
      writing and capacity-building skills to submit competitive applications to HUD and other
      grant sources.
Workshop Intent & Structure
HUD’s Fall 08 Grant Writing Training is a FREE, one-day Technical Assistance workshop
designed to educate mid-level non-profit CBOs – both faith-based or secular – on targeted grant
writing procedures to successfully access HUD and other related grant funds. Trainers, selected
from a cadre of HUD staff and subsequently taught the course material, are provided by HUD’s
Center        for       Faith-Based         and      Community           Initiatives       (see
http://www.hud.gov/offices/fbci/4thtraining.cfm).
Notices are being sent out to community-based organizations by the Los Angeles Field Office
and the City of Inglewood – the latter, this fall’s event host – regarding a training workshop
targeting representatives of mid-level South Bay non-profit organizations. The workshop’s goal
is to increase their organizational capacity and knowledge skill-sets for the betterment of their
communities.
For information on how to register, contact Stephen D. Clark – HUD’s Field Office Faith Based
Liaison – at 213.534-2508 or by email at Stephen.D.Clark@hud.gov. There will be no workshop
admittance by any individual representing a CBO without prior screening and subsequent
registration. Finally, your organization must be a 501 (c) 3 to attend.
