NASHVILLE, Tenn. – State Senator Ken Yager (R-Kingston) announced today that his annual Grants Conference will be held on Wednesday, September 18, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Roane State Community College in Harriman. The conference will focus on providing local governments, community groups and nonprofits pertinent information on available grants and the best practices for preparing a competitive application that will be successful.

The right federal, state or local grant can make the difference in going forward on a needed project.”
