Improving the School Program through the Effective Use of Federal Funds.
This pamphlet shows school personnel how to apply successfully for Federal grants to finance improvements in educational programs. Advice is given on the importance of evaluating needs, objectives, and procedures as a prerequisite to writing a proposal. Next, suggestions for writing a good proposal are made, including references to the need for considering project feasibility, content, dissemination, time sequence, and appearance of the proposal to be submitted. A list of 18 Federal programs contains information on program titles, purposes, submission deadlines, and names and addresses of the appropriate agencies from which information may be secured for each program. An index of 102 possible types of projects in the general areas of equipment and materials, facilities, health services, programs and projects, research and development, special programs, and training, is provided along with an indication as to which of the 18 Federal programs each might be funded under. A short bibliography lists books and articles relevant to making project applications. (TT)
