Evaluation and Training Inst., Los Angeles, CA.
Designed to assist community college administrators and faculty in obtaining direct funding grants to enhance vocational education programs and services, this Vocational Education Resource Package (VERP) provides guidelines for writing grant proposals. The VERP is tailored for programs requesting funds from the California Community Colleges or other federal or state agencies. After providing background information on the VERP series, the booklet presents overall tips on proposal writing, underscoring the importance of brainstorming, breaking down the task of proposal writing into manageable pieces, and including appropriate and documented references. The next section explains the Request for Proposal (RFP) process, including a hypothetical RFP, an outline of the RFP format, and a list of tasks to complete before beginning to write the proposal. Next, section-by-section guidelines for writing the technical proposal are presented, focusing on the cover page, abstract, table of contents, introduction/needs statement, goals and objectives, procedures/activities, timeline, project management, locations and facilities, evaluation, dissemination, statement of compliance, and appendixes. Tips and examples are provided for most sections. The final sections offer assistance in preparing the cost proposal and detailed budget, a checklist of major issues and components, stylistic recommendations, and a list of resources. (AC)
