DeMint Grants Staff Travel to Myrtle Beach
Posted by Ashley Holbrook 12/03/2008 - 02:42:49 PM
Below is a guest blog from Jessi Knight, Sen. DeMint's grants coordinator, and Danielle Gibbs, state projects director.

Today Danielle Gibbs and I are guest blogging on Ashley's page. We handle grants for the senator and recently spent a few days in the Lowcountry. Tuesday evening we spoke to about 50 people at the Charleston Area Grant Professionals meeting. CAGP has been in existence for 10 years and serves as a forum for grant professionals in Charleston to meet, exchange ideas, and form partnerships. Danielle and I spoke about federal funding opportunities, where and how to apply, and how we can assist.

Wednesday we held a workshop at the Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce that included a Grants.gov e-seminar. Grants.gov is the warehouse for all federal grant opportunities, and the e-seminar explained in detail how to register, find, and apply for federal grants. Cookie Sprouse from the Chapin Foundation also spoke on private funding resources.

We certainly enjoyed our time in Charleston and Myrtle Beach and look forward to our next trip.
