Writing proposals for grants is NOT just another proposal. First, grants refer to funding provided by Federal, State, and Local governments, corporations, non-government organizations (NGOs), etc. Grants may be offered by local foundations, county governments, or international agencies. This is a specialized and highly variable form of proposal—the “grant proposal”—and requires a clear understanding of the “grant process.”
First, grant requirements vary widely from one agency to another. The first step is always to review the grant request and understand both objective of the grant offering and the requirements of the application (proposal). Keep in mind that there are many agencies that regularly compete for grant funding, and that first attempts at obtaining grant funding may be disappointing, especially where the granting agency is an international or offshore agency that is used to doing business with a familiar group of companies.
