What Makes a Grant Fundable?
  • The idea must be innovative.
  • The idea must address the needs of a particular population, especially one not generally affected by the normal methodologies.
  • The idea must promote a change which is not only desirable but also measurable.
  • The grant solicitation MUST be followed and all materials MUST be submitted on time. A proposal should ideally be ready 2 weeks in advance of the due date to allow adequate time for internal reviews and approvals.
  • There must be a plan for the sustainability of the activity once the funding period is completed.
  • There should be a plan to “get the word out”.
  • The grant proposal or application must address the grant guidelines.
