LGBTQ cultural competency training is widely used and highly recommended for staff working in healthcare settings and social service organizations. Indeed, the federal Department of Health and Human Services encourages new and existing human services programs to include LGBTQ cultural competency curricula, as “the lack of culturally competent providers is a significant barrier to quality health care for many LGBTQ people, particularly those who identify as transgender.”

Agenda topics in this webinar will include:

  • Understanding inclusive language and why it is especially important for the LGBTQ+ population
  • Breaking down terminology, understanding its importance and learning to adopt it into everyday use 
  • Health disparities in the LGBTQ+ population
  • Specific ways to be inclusive in prevention practices

Join Prevention Insights for a two-day, virtual, DFC Grant Writing Workshop, March 17-18, 2020; you’ll leave with an in-depth understanding of how to develop highly competitive proposal content for each required section and how to assemble all key elements required for the application process.  Given the increasingly competitive nature of prevention funding, this training is designed to increase your grant writing skill set for DFC and other Federal funding initiatives.

Are you wondering if taking part in the DFC Grant Writing Workshop series is right for you? Perhaps you have a previously written Drug Free Communities grant proposal that has not yet been funded or submitted, or maybe you have utilized other grant-writing resources and supports, and are curious as to what makes this training special?

The 2020 DFC Grant Writing Workshop offers a unique opportunity for:

  • Comprehensive, specialized, and in-depth training and instruction tailored to the 2020 DFC Funding Opportunity Announcement requirements established by the CDC. Our workshop is designed to ensure that your proposal exceeds the scoring criteria in order to maximize your score. 
  • Individualized feedback will be provided for one proposal per applicant and will be provided by highly-experienced DFC trainers and facilitators. This will allow you to enhance and refine, section-by-section, your proposal.  There will be a live chat as well as a question and answer section sequenced to align with the DFC narrative sections throughout the two day training.

If you’ve got an older draft that needs updated to the 2020 requirements in the new CDC Notice of Funding Opportunity, this workshop is for you!

If you’ve been wondering how to strengthen your proposal or wanting review and feedback on what you’ve written, this workshop is for you!

If you’ve worked with an external grant-writer, but you are looking for ways to pull the coalition into the effort, this workshop is for you!

Cost:  $350 per participant
