In this dropbox submit as an attachment: The Final Grant Proposal
The final grant proposal should be one continuous document. Each section should be DETAILED and LABELED WITH THE APPROPRIATE HEADING. Make sure you review Worksheet 11.1. The Final Proposal should include:
- A cover letter (see page 98), WHICH IS DIFFERENT FROM THE LETTER OF INQUIRY
- Executive Summary (highlighting the key points of each section concisely, see step 10 and worksheet 10.1 for examples)
- A problem statement (needs assessment)
- A program description (including the organization’s background) (Please see completed example grant on page 8 for details)
- Goals and objectives statement for the project you are seeking funding
- Methods section (how you intend to accomplish the objectives)
- Evaluation component (how you will measure the success of the program)
- Budget narrative
- References (If used)
- Supporting documentation (if necessary) Salary schedules, catalog prices, resumes’ for directors, rental agreements, surveys, etc.
Note: Do not ATTACH ANY worksheets. The submission should be one continuous document, not made up of different attachments. You should submit each section’s narrative component, not worksheets, with any revisions that were suggested in your feedback. The document must flow in one organized document. See example proposals under the Lessons Tab.
If you simply submit prior submissions without making corrections, if corrections were noted in comments, you will not receive a passing grade for this assignment.

THE FOLLOWING ARE CORRECTIONS THAT NEED TO BE MADE IN THE FINAL GRANT PROPOSAL
The legal status in worksheet 9 needs to be the IRS legal designation for a legal status, such as 501(c)(3). Also, more detail is needed in question 8 of worksheet 1
Question 11 on worksheet 2 need to be answered. Also, more detail is needed in questions 4, 5, and 8.
No cover page is needed with submissions. You also need to ask for the money in the first paragraphs of your letter to set the tone. Finally, the Letter of Inquiry is a bit too long and a reference page is not necessary. Remember, this is a letter, not a research paper.
As for the Statement of Problem/questionnaire: A bit more detail in your worksheet would have been good. Lots of responses that needed more specific detail.
More detail is needed in your evaluation worksheet and narrative. More specifically, you mention collecting samples but you need much more detail as to what this means. Also, it should be inquire about health status, not what you listed.
Your budget and narrative do not match. The numbers in your narrative must match your worksheet. Also, the worksheet expenses and revenue must match. If the numbers do not match, you do not have a budget, it’s something else. Also, in your narrative, you need to justify each expense, not just list it.
