A strong grant management plan is needed to secure funding and also to ensure that you stay in compliance with the requirements of the grant. If your organization pursues grants on a regular or even annual basis, you should employ at least one part-time grant manager. Grant managers handle the grant from start to finish, including writing grant proposals, planning and implementing grant programs, and ensuring that your agency is audit-ready at all times. Learn more about the importance of grant managers in our blog post, What Good Grant Managers Do.
