This slideshow requires JavaScript.

With the deadlines for CapGrants and FY2019 Discretionary Funding fast approaching, I was proud to host a free budget workshop NonProfit HelpDesk, part of JCCGCI (Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island) on Monday, January 29th where over 60 individuals from not-for-profit and cultural organizations were in attendance.

In case you missed our workshop, you can watch our Facebook Live video and download the presentation, The Process Simplified. Additionally, I am hosting a conference call on Friday, February 9th at 10AM for general questions about the City Council discretionary application process.
