Year-Round Training and Events for Successful Programs and Projects
The ANA Western Region offers live and in-person training events year-round on a variety of topics. While these events are free, attendees are responsible for the travel and per diem costs associated with attendance. Early registration is recommended because trainings are subject to cancellation due to low enrollment. Please do not make travel arrangements until we are sure the training will be held.
Types of Training We Offer:
- Monthly Webinars: View past webinars or register for upcoming webinars.
- Project Planning and Development (PPD): In-person event that takes place over several days and will walk you through community-based planning process that will help to shape your project design. Come to this training with an understanding of your community’s long-range goals. Don’t worry if you aren’t quite there yet, we can also help you identify those goals along the way.

- Pre-Application (Pre-App): In-person event to walk you through the Federal Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), what’s expected in your grant proposal, and how to adapt your community-based project to ANA’s review criteria. Come to this training with a project idea already in mind. If you aren’t quite there yet, consider attending our PPD training first or check out the <PPD manual> in advance. This training usually takes place in the Winter or Spring of each year, check back for our next event!
- Post-Award: In-person event held strictly for recent ANA grantees. Here we walk through the ANA grant cycle and expectations for reaching project objectives and goals. If you are a new grantee, you are required to attend this training and ANA will be in touch with more details. If you are an applicant, you can learn more about ANA’s expectations by looking at the Post-Award Manual or the Grants Management Toolkit – use these resources to flesh out your project design.
