Georgians learn to compete for money

September 22, 2004

Valdosta - Hundreds of people are in South Georgia this week, learning how to compete for federal money.

About 400 people from across the state are taking part in a HUD grant writing workshop at the Valdosta-Lowndes Conference Center. They're getting information on securing government money, HUD programs available for non profit agencies, and grant proposal writing techniques.

"Some people are interested in going into faith based developments, building low to moderate income housing, and this grant process teaches them how to compete for funds so they can do all the various things they're doing in the community," said Teresa Chappell, Organizer.

More than 500 people were signed up for the course, but that number dropped when it was rescheduled because of Hurricane Ivan.

The workshop will end Thursday afternoon.
