GRANTS - GRANTS - GRANTS

What's a Grant?

A Grant is a monetary award that is "granted" to a specifically qualified group (usually, a not-for-profit entity who is known as the "Grantee") that will use those "awarded" funds for a very specific purpose, that has been spelled out very painstakingly, in detail, by the Grantor.



How Does My "Grant-writer" Fit into This Picture?

The "Grant-Writer" in this situation is really a bearer of mistaken identity. Your "Grant-Writer" is actually a "Grant-Proposal-Writer." This is the person or team that has the task to present solid, informative, convincing, well-presented, and truthful documentation to convince the Grantor (funder) to award funds to be used for the reasons set forth in the Grant offering.



How Are Grants Funded?

Grants are usually funded by government entities, but not always. Grant funders (Grantors) may appear as any of the following:

  • Federal Government
  • State Government
  • Local Government
  • Foundations
  • Corporations
  • Private Individuals

What's Included in Grant Application Package?

Each Grant Application Package is unique.

That means that your ideas of the meaning of the grant must coincide, exactly, with the "Request For Proposal" (RFP); or the "Notice of Funds Availability" (NOFA) issued by the grant-making agency or foundation. Misinterpretation of ideas equals no award funds.

Writing the Grant Proposal is not a "Rush Job;" unless you enjoy the practice of writing grant proposals.

What is Required for Writing Grant Proposals?

Writing Grant Proposals requires:
  • Attention to detail
  • Knowing the rules
  • Employing professional writers
  • Identifying the needs
  • Documenting the needs
  • Knowing your goals and objectives
  • Presenting your goals and objectives distinctly and convincingly
  • Developing and presenting a winning program
  • Preparation of your budget and finances for presentation
  • Showing you will sustain the program when your funds are exhausted
  • You can prove your capacity to get the job completed

How are Grant-Writers Paid?

Quite well, actually. But...they don't get paid from the award funds!

Award funds are to be used only for the very specific reasons set forth in the Grant Application. Paying grant writers and other costs of writing the grant are not ever allowed to be payable from award funds.

Those costs must be borne from the general funds of the entity seeking the grant; or from other sources.

Grant writers would certainly be confronted with ethical issues by accepting their payment through award funds.

Also, one must consider that even the best written and professionally presented proposal is not guaranteed to win every grant award. There are too many other factors that come into play in every grant award to be sure of 100% success in every instance.
