field office held a faith-based and community workshop on November 13, 2003 in
Casper, Wyoming. This workshop was Part II of a grant-funding workshop held earlier
this year. The first workshop was on basic grant writing skills. The second workshop
was held based on feedback from participants. Faith-based and community organizations
requested time to meet and ask questions of funding organizations. The workshop
began with a discussion of what is happening with the Faith-Based and Community
Initiative in Wyoming. The Governor's liaison, Andy Aldrich, spoke about the future
of this initiative in Wyoming and Bobby Loud, from the Center for Faith-Based
and Community Initiatives in Nebraska spoke about the work of his nonprofit and
the initiative in Nebraska. The workshop continued with three panel discussions
allowing participants to ask questions of private foundations, state agencies,
and federal agencies. Over seventy participants from across Wyoming attended and
learned about the Faith-Based and Community Initiative and possible funding sources.
