Winning Federal Grants: A Guide to the Government's Grant-Making Process.
Ramsey, Leslie A.; Hale, Phale D., Jr.
The federal government administers hundreds of grant proposals each year, but many grant seekers fail to apply because they perceive the process as overwhelmingly complex and bureaucratic. This guidebook was written to help educators find the federal government grants they need. Seven chapters explain how federal agencies operate their grant programs and show grant seekers how to use that knowledge, taking them step by step through the process of federal grant seeking. The guidebook describes how Congress creates grant programs; how federal agencies set rules to run those programs; how grant programs announce competitions; how reviewers read and rate grant proposals; how grant programs notify successful applicants of their awards; and what rules and procedures grantees must follow to manage their awards. A glossary is included. Appendices contain a list of grant-making federal agencies, a sample of federal grant forms, and a list of resources. (LMI)
