2022 Grantee Trainings

Welcome to the landing page for DCBF's 2022 grantee trainings and grants-related events. With the exception of the "Grant Writing for Success" workshop, trainings are hosted by DCBF and are offered to DCBF grantees only. 

DCBF provides support to DC-based civil legal aid organizations through trainings and technical assistance. DCBF not only sponsors multiple trainings for DC’s legal aid organizations every year, but also pays the tuition fee for their staff attorneys to attend select legal skills trainings offered by other organizations in DC. In regards to technical assistance, DCBF provides one-time funding for peer evaluations and consultants when needed by grantees.
