Business Participatation with the Grant Consultant
When a business hires a Grant Consultant to prepare a letter, proposal, or application for a grant award, there is a considerable amount of "EFFORT" that will still be required on the part of the business.  So, one person in the business should be designated as the point person to work with the Grant Consultant.  Typical responsibilities of the business that must be accomplished in a timely manner will include the following:
  • Registration with the System for Award Management (SAM) will be required and must be maintained annually (if applying for a Federal grant) 
  • Provide the Annual Organization Budget for current year 
  • Provide the Project Budget (summary budget plus line item details for the Budget Narrative)
  • Provide a  Summary of project to be funded (services to be provided as well as scope of services, target population description, geographic service area, project staffing plan
  • Provide Resumes of Key Personnel
  • Provide Information for any forms required by the Grantmaker
  • Reviewing documents prepared by the Grant Consultant; this review process may be repeated several times during the writing process
  • Actual online submission or mailing of the letter, proposal or application to the Grantmaker
