Grants, Contracts, & Agreements

Proposal Enhancement Tools

These tools provide a self-help process to make projects and grant proposals more competitive. These tools help:

  • Effectively identify and describe the target audiences 
  • Anticipate impact of your efforts 
  • Verify the direction of your proposal 
  • Help identify potential gaps in your basic analysis and how to fill them
  • Clearly describe information to support your proposal
  • Move your writing from general to specific
  • Prompt you to organize and analyze disparate pieces of information
  • Define measure to evaluate your success

Invest 20 minutes to two days, depending on your current understanding of your audience and issues that affect them, and your available time. The greater your investment, the greater your potential for success.
