ETA is committed to ensuring that as many entities as possible, in particular smaller entities such as community and faith-based groups and entities that have not previously managed Federal grant programs are aware of competitive grant application opportunities. Recognizing that smaller community organizations and entities that are "new" to the Federal grant-making process may be unfamiliar with ETA SGA's and with ETA's process for evaluating grant applications. ETA has developed several tools to help new organizations craft competitive applications. Included in the new site is an Annotated Sample Solicitation for Grant Applications (SGA), "Grant Applications 101" tutorial, and a compilation of helpful resources. this podcast will review these tools and encourage new applicants to access ETA grants.
