VISTA Tierra Bishop Builds Capacity through Grant Writing

Tierra 1

Tierra Bishop, a Resource Development VISTA with Christian Community Action (CCA), wrote and submitted two major grants for the CCA Food Pantry in June of 2016. The first grant was for $25,000 from the Dallas Mavericks Foundation, and the second was for $25,000 as well, from the Walmart Foundation. In addition to her grant submissions, Tierra began creating a standard operating procedure (SOP) for the grant research, writing and review process with CCA.  Her efforts this month will potentially bring upcoming funds to support CCA’s nearly 5,000 individuals that utilize the food pantry, as well as long-term efficiency and sustainability through her Grants SOP development.
