Once the proper funding source and amount is identified, Grantwise can complete or review the application document for the applicant. There are several strategies that can be employed to writing the grant application to ensure compliance with fund requirements and maximize the attractiveness of the project for the funding source.
Application & Business Plan
A Business Plan is an excellent way to organize the project specifics prior to the application. It will make the application process easier and ensure important decisions are made in advance of the application and avoid compliance issues later in the process. In some cases, a written business plan is a required element for a funding award. Grantwise can assist with the development of this document as well as facilitate the discussions with the relevant funding agencies to review the concept.
Compliance with the funding requirements is essential during multiple stages of the project from bidding through construction. The Grantwise experts will meet with an applicant bi-weekly or monthly, as needed, to ensure the project is compliant with all requirements.
Grantwise understands how important – and sometime frustrating – it can be to get the drawn down reimbursement from a grant once it is approved. There are processes and procedures that can be employed to make the process more expeditious. The documentation requirements are stringent and any missing, incomplete or incorrect pieces will cause the release of reimbursement funds to be reduced, delayed or in the worst case disallowed. We will work with the project team to ensure that the documentation is correct.
