About Project Planning and Development Training
A well-designed project is the foundation of a fundable ANA grant application. Project planning and development training teaches you about the planning processes to use in creating a well-designed project. You will build your capacity to plan and design projects for a variety of public or private funders, including ANA. The training will also provide tools to define the problems faced by your community and methods to create community-based solutions for those problems.
