Follow the Money, Grant Funding Research and Writing Tips
Thursday, November 14 at 8:30 am
Instructor: Sylvia A. Welch, Ph.D

Do I Follow this Money Road or Not: Does the grant fit my organization's mission? Will this grant reinforce/complement my current activities and approved plans?

Basics of Grant Writing and Budget Development: Dissecting/analyzing a funding request, usually known as a Request for Proposal (RFP) from government agencies, and guidelines for Letters of Interest from foundations.

Identify a grant writing team and organizing their work using the RFP as your guide.

Budgeting - can existing staff run the new program, or will full and/or part timers be needed, and what is the market rate for those-what are your current overhead costs (rent, utilities, insurance, phone, internet, etc) and how to prorate these costs for your new budget.
