Over the next four to six months I anticipate submitting four to eight grant applications related to creating new employment opportunities for unemployed, underemployed, and those who've been subjects of reduction in force (RIF) initiatives.

Our grants will also cover additional funding of existing, and the development of new, educational and vocational training programs.

Based on our implementation schedule the first grant application will need to be completed on or about 1 June, although this is subject to change.

This request is to solicit applications from experienced grant writers, their bios and relevant samples of their work. Prior to making a final decision I may request external references, but ask you not to submit any references with your initial response.
