Federal Grants: Managing the Development of a Federal Grant Proposal
Session 5 of the Federal Grants Series
Many nonprofits are not successful with federal grants because they do not have the time or expertise to run effective project design meetings. This causes proposals to become rushed at the end and errors are made which ultimately cause the project to not be selected for funding. Understanding the essential elements of most federal grants and how to prioritize getting the information needed is a skill that can be learned and mastered. This session will step you through the project management skills needed to develop a federal grant on time while respecting the contributions of key personnel within your organization.
What you will learn:
- Key components to a proposal development timeline and checklist
- How to design and run a series of proposal design meetings
- How to use charts like a logic model to get consensus and information about project activities quickly
- When to hold a meeting and when to provide a checklist

Federal Grants Training Series
Most people consider federal grant training to be a more advanced form of grant writing and management. We at Assel Grant Services do a lot of work with federal grants and we believe that federal grants share a lot of characteristics with significant federal grants. That said, there are a lot of nuances unique to federal grants to learn. This professional development series is designed to help nonprofit professionals who have never written a federal grant be as prepared to step through the federal grant pre-award and post-award process for the first time with confidence.
These sessions are designed to support nonprofit professionals before and during their first federal grant. If you don’t tune in before your first opportunity comes out, this series can be managed during a typical six to eight-week federal grant funding cycle.
