2006 Continued Funding Application

This application is for continuing NWP sites only. Learn how to start a new NWP site.

Each National Writing Project site must participate in an annual reporting and review process that supports the renewal of its federal funding. Continuing sites apply for renewal in January by submitting the Continued Funding Application (CFA) by January 11, 2006. This application includes a narrative report of the site's recent accomplishments, challenges, and plans for the year ahead. It also includes a budget request and the submission of core contact information for the site and its leadership.

The CFA must be submitted in hard copy and online. Please submit your CFA online by returning to this page between January 4 and January 11, 2006.

In addition to the 2006 Continued Funding Application, sites must submit a Requested Budget Form (2006-2007), Invitational Summer Institute Schedule (2005), and Site Map. All four of these documents can be downloaded below.


The deadline both for submission of the electronic documents and for receipt of the complete hard-copy packets at the NWP office in Berkeley, California, is 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on Wednesday, January 11, 2006. The online submission period is January 4–11, 2006.
