Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Diane M Tomasic, EdD, RN (Slippery Rock University )
Description: This book describes the step-by-step basics of writing a grant proposal. The previous edition was published in 2006.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the fundamentals of grant writing: understanding a request for proposal (RFP), the function of the reviewers, key points in a proposal section, tips for creating winning sections, the influence of technology in the grant process, and resources for funding opportunities.
Audience: The target audience includes both beginning and advanced grant writers. The author is a nationally known grant writer for education and nonprofit clients.
Features: The chapters cover each step of the grant proposal. One chapter contains seven sample proposals, which are most helpful to grant writers. Differences in grant programs are described. In addition, several helpful appendixes include federal and private websites, resources, state single points of contact, sample budget forms and narratives, and sample federal forms. This edition has been updated to include grant changes since 2005. New to this edition is a chapter on technology and coverage of the online submission process.
Assessment: This book should be of great assistance to grant writers. It is easy to understand and the sample proposals are most helpful.
