Our company is based in Illinois, a state whose budget woes are getting national attention. Many of our municipal contacts are faced with a disheartening situation: state funds that have been reliable sources of support for many years suddenly are no longer available. Although such funds are never guaranteed, they have in the past been steady enough to build budgets around them. Now those budgets are in jeopardy. As a result, our consultations and strategy sessions often revolve around replacement funding.
We recently posted a blog discussing the services we offer throughout the first two steps of grant development. In this blog post, we at TheGrantHelpers discuss the final three steps in the grant development process as well as what we can do to help secure your organization more grant money.
We at TheGrantHelpers are often asked what types of services we can provide. Do we help organizations find grants? Yes. Do we write grant proposals? Yes. Can we help do the research and write the grant itself? No problem. Can we do all of this on an as-needed basis, without the burden of an organization having to employ a permanent staff? Absolutely.
