Proposal Tips and Resources

Proposals are submitted for funding to agency programs that are increasingly competitive. For your proposal to be awarded, it must stand above other submissions. It is extremely important that you understand the proposal guidelines and create your proposal to meet those guidelines. Requests for proposals vary significantly among agencies and can vary year to year for the same program.
