Prepare your grant according to the specific guidelines listed on the government website or listing where you found the grant description. Include your company name, contact information, date and grant application # on every page. Complete every section, leaving nothing blank. Consult application which provides paragraph descriptions for each section.

Many grants come withdetailed instructions for submission. Requesting a copy of a previously funded grant can sometimes be useful. Perhaps the best advice is to contact the entitity funding the grant and ask to speak with any individual that may be charged with coordinating the applications. There are often individuals available by appointment to give you individual assistance.

Know the funder and follow their guidelines to the letter! Know your project and be able to sum it up in one sentence, expanding the concept to the requirements of your funder. Proposals can be quite simple or require lots of backup documentation, such as financials.

Make sure your project really fits with the group offering the grant. Follow their directions exactly. Back up your statements with research. Write your goals and objectives first and then make sure your grant is organized logically around them.

Read the directions. Determine if your proposal is what the funder actually funds. Start with an outline following each step of your plan. Spell out the problem your proposal looks to solve. Make sure your goals are clearly laid out. Take time to research and evaluate actual expenses. Have people outside your organization read the proposal. Proof it for errors.
