Before you begin searching for the grant, develop a project plan by asking key questions such as;

  • Who are you?
  • What are you proposing to do?
  • Why does this project need to happen?
  • What will change because of this project?
  • How are you going to achieve this?
  • When are the key dates and milestones?
  • Who is involved in the project?
  • What costs are involved?
  • What will be the outcome?Submitted By:
