I am Jo Miller, GPC, CEO and Managing Director of J Miller and Associates, a professional grant services firm I founded in 2005. I work with nonprofits and government agencies on project design, strategic planning, proposal writing, communications, and grant management. Since 1998, I have worked in and with Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes programs. I served as a Senior Technical Adviser for the National Center for Healthy Housing. I am one of less than 400 grant professionals who hold the Grant Professionals Certified credential through the Grant Professionals Certification Institute, and one of just 25 Approved Trainers through the Grant Professionals Association.
I believe in connections! Connections are at the heart of why I love grants, creating communities, and serving local government, nonprofits, and community organizations. When we come together, we see possibilities, gather and share resources and tools, and lift each other up.
The GrantChat Community heads into its 10th year! I am grateful for the incredible community and the encouragement and support members have given me and to each other.
A big thanks to my dear friend, Bill Radosevich, for hiring me under a lead hazard control grant and telling me to write the next one. Little did I know how much that would change my life and how lead and healthy housing and grants would become my passion and my career.
