Telling Your Story Through Budget

Description: If you are not experienced with budgets, they can often illuminate personal insecurities, and sometimes feels overwhelming. As culturally specific organizations, we need to have our budget reflect our cultures within them. This session will walk through the steps in the process of creating a budget as part of the OVW CSSP application. Participants will be able to identify the important things to include within their project budget and how to incorporate cultural activities within their budget. We will also cover what is important to do, and important not to do when it comes to preparing a budget.
