Presenter: Kim Murnieks, Director, OBM & Stacie Massey, Financial Manager, OBM

Have you ever wondered if your municipality is missing out on grant funding opportunities that could really help with an existing need? Are you overwhelmed with figuring out the best approach to find these opportunities and apply for them? It can be difficult enough just navigating to find the right funding opportunity; however, once you find one then you must write a competitive application to ensure you are awarded funding. The Office of Budget and Management, Ohio Grants Partnership section will provide you with tips on locating federal and state opportunities, as well as a best practice approach for writing a competitive grant application.

COST: $125 per registrant  (limit of 70 registrants per webinar session)

Since each session is limited to 70 registrants, registrants are encouraged to set up for the webinar in a conference room, with a speaker phone and computer screen, and to invite other city officials to attend. 

Your municipality counts as 1 registrant. You may have as many city officials (attorneys, mayors, council members, etc.) attend as you wish, for this $125 fee but you must fill out a registration form for each participant.

Payment can be made by check or credit card. If you choose to pay by check, please mail your check, payable to OMAA, to 175 S. Third Street, Suite 510, Columbus, OH 43215. If you choose to pay by credit card, you will receive a link to do so with the registration confirmation once you complete the online registration form. (*Please include the name/date of the webinar with your payment.)

If we should bill someone besides the municipality, please indicate the name and full address of that entity on your registration form in the comments field.
