New grants make it possible for cash-strapped agencies to bring important services into the community and get innovative ideas off the ground.

Yet applying for and receiving grants can a competitive process.

To help members of the non-profit community and government agencies decipher the intricacies of the grant process, the Lake Cumberland District Health Department and Lake Cumberland Children's Advocacy will host the Grantsmanship Training Program through Sept. 12 at the Lake Cumberland District Health Department in Somerset.

The five-day workshop will be conducted by the Grantsmanship Center, the world's oldest and largest training organization for the nonprofit sector. Designed for both novice and experienced grant seekers, this workshop covers all aspects of searching for grants, writing grant proposals and negotiating with funding sources.

To ensure personal attention, registration is limited to 30 participants. The program fee of $895 includes the workshop tuition and one year of The Grantsmanship Center Membership benefits and services. Half-tuition scholarships may be available for organizations with annual operating budgets of less than $300,000.

To register for the workshop, or apply for a scholarship, contact the Grantsmanship Center at (800) 421-9512. For local information, call Carol Huckelby at the Lake Cumberland District Health Department at (800) 928-4416 Ext. 140.
