This archived audio webcast is one hour and three minutes long. In the first half hour, Dan Caison talks about general, good grant-making strategies. At the half hour point, he begins discussing IT grant funding for about 15 minutes. He is a very thorough and knowledgeable authority on grant writing, and even I learned something new. If you have some spare time, please check out this audio webcast. I am sure you will find it not only provocative but also entertaining.

These are two excellent sources for grant funding. I would encourage you to take the time and explore the possibilities presented here.<>
