Join us for a workshop near you to learn about each of our funding programs, including who’s eligible, funding amounts, planning a successful application, and how to write it in a compelling way. We’ll also update you on new grants from our division and share what’s new for the 2024 grant season, new timelines, and introduce new members of our team! All workshops include a Q&A to ensure your questions about your next project can be answered! This year’s workshop locations include Duchesne, Price, Monticello, Bicknell, Tropic, Cedar City, Richfield, Logan, Park City, Orem, Sterling, and Salt Lake City.
