Topic: JCSHWF – Application Assistance and Q&A

Our next set of Zoom Sessions are on Application Assistance. There will two sessions for the Organizations and Small Groups and two sessions for the Underserved Individuals. These will be on Wednesdays at 5:30 pm and Saturdays at 10 am. The sessions will walk you through the application and show you mock samples of things to focus on and how much detail is required. There will be time allocated for Questions & Answers.

Here is the schedule and the Zoom links for the four sessions. We will record one of the Organization and Small Group sessions and one of the Underserved Individual sessions and have them available on the website under Resources – Videos.
