How to Write a Grant Proposal

Federal grants are competitive and federal dollars are limited. Grant proposals must be well written and must comply with grant criteria to be competitive. Grants are awarded to organizations whose proposals are in line with program priorities, and whose projects meet the highest standards. See here for more information on how to write a grant proposal.
