Grant Proposal Development Steps
Have an idea for a project and find a grant that could fund it.
Complete the pre-proposal grant short form for grants $100,000 or less, obtain the required signatures, and forward the completed form to the Grants Office.
Complete the pre-proposal grant concept approval form for grants $100,000 or more, obtain the required signatures, and forward the completed form to the Grants Office.
The Grants Initiative Committee reviews pre-proposals for grants $100,000 or less, without significant match requirements, partnerships, or sustainability requirements.
The Cabinet reviews pre-proposals for grants that are $100,001 or more or that involve significant partnerships or sustainability requirements. The Grants Initiative Committee reviews the pre-proposal for these grants first and makes a recommendation to Cabinet.
Write the grant proposal if you receive authorization to do so.
The appropriate CAC staff review the grant proposal.
President Elliott or another authorized representative signs the completed application.
Submit the completed proposal to the funding entity by the deadline.
