  • A federal grant is the aid given by a government agency to achieve a public purpose of supporting the causes authorized by the laws of the United States. Know that grants are neither federal assistance nor loans. You will never find a government grant to acquire a property or buy groceries.

Match your goals with those of the grantwriter

The principal role of the grantwriters is to bequeath money on the basis of what matters to them the most. They are not there to consider what matters to you. Also, never expect sympathy or pity to rule over the grantwriting or grant application process. If the grantwriter concludes that you are not going to use the grant money for the intended purpose, then you are only wasting both of your time and the grant applications is never going to get approved.

Hence before applying for a given grant, it is necessary that you make a thorough research of the details of the grant application and the organization that is sponsoring it.

Grantwriters are known to recognize the intent behind the proposals that are pooled up in front of them. They will not be misguided by those that aim at just getting some money out of them. Hence there is no point in expecting something for nothing. The grants proposal you submit must prove that you have solid plans for making use of the money you will receive as grants. Ensure the grants application is free of any errors and mistakes. Submitting the application in time is very crucial for eligibility.

Never give an indication that you are offended when the grantwriters pile up questions in front of you challenging your purpose and the application. This is naturally expected of them.

Be ready for the report that follows a grant

Once you have got a grant, a report will certainly follow. Do not expect the agency to give you the grant and then just walk away. Getting grants assistance is not like winning a game show.
