Frequently Asked Questions about Grant Writing
How long does it take to write a grant proposal?
The timeline depends on the complexity of the program, scope of work, etc. Generally, it takes between 3-5 weeks.
Can I pay the grant writer from awarded money/contingency?
No. It is no longer considered an ethical use of funds to pay the grant writer from awarded money, nor is it allowed by funders. It's best practice to agree and pay a fixed rate at the beginning of the project.
Do you guarantee I'll be awarded the grant?
No, funding is never a guarantee. Even if everything aligns with the heavens, the funder makes the final decision on who is and is not awarded a grant.
How long will it take to receive awarded funds?
It can take months to receive awarded funds and depends on the guidelines of the funder.
Please note: For grant writing services, this is for nonprofit organizations that are a 501 c 3 tax-exempt that caters to youth development, women and girls, and minority/disadvantaged communities. This service is only for community and foundation grants. No Federal grants.
