Free SkillBuilders Available through Recovery Act Funding

by Rachael DeCruz

Through an American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grant from the US Department of Health & Human Services, the Maine Association of Nonprofits will be offering organizations fitting the ARRA grant requirements a limited number of coupons to attend our half-day nonprofit management training courses.  These coupons may be used at any of MANP’s publically advertised half-day SkillBuilder Programs between March 1, 2010 and September 29, 2011, and will cover the full cost of the half-day program. 

Selected organizations must meet one or more of the following criteria to be eligible for coupons through this grant:

  • They serve an economically depressed region.
  • They serve a population that has been hurt by the economic downturn.
  • They provide services to low income and disadvantaged populations.
  • Their income has been severely affected by the economic downturn. 

If you are interested in applying for one or more coupons for free ½ day training, please  download the Application for SkillBuilders Coupons and forward to Anne DiStefano by e-mail.   You may simply cut and paste the questions into the body of an e-mail.
