Divide the Labor of Preparing the Proposal and Get Started
As the proposal writer, you will likely be responsible for writing the majority of the proposal. However, you may want to request help with budget section and with any highly technical sections (e.g., a technology grant that requires extensive description of computer hardware and networking terminology). Requesting help from persons in your organization who have expertise in these areas will improve the overall quality of the proposal and increase the chances of it being accepted. Some agencies have found it useful to form grantwriting teams with responsibilities for researching, writing, and editing shared among employees to ensure the accuracy and quality of the proposals they send.
