Congratulations on winning a grant award! In this competitive environment winning a grant, any grant that required that you write and submit a formal proposal, means you did a great job. Many grants, especially at the federal level, often have more than 75 pages of instructions and if you do not follow them exactly, as in: use the correct font, adhere to section page limits, not exceed expenses for certain things, have all of the correct attachments and signature pages filled out properly and have the correct mandatory partners and more, your proposal that you spent so much time on will go straight in the garbage.
As if it were not enough to just follow the complicated instructions, you then have to put together a well-written, compelling narrative of often 25 pages or more that speaks to your ability to achieve the specific measurable outcomes along with a logic model that aligns with the funders’ goals.
