Proposal Resources

Proposal Resources are available through the online application website. These applicant resources have been developed to help you prepare a successful proposal.

Grant Writing Fundamentals

This page is dedicated to resource materials on the fundamentals of grant writing. Not to be confused with the Center’s regional competitive grants program, the materials provided here are designed specifically to help applicants write successful proposals no matter which public or private entity they may be applying to.

The links to the right will take you to materials that were developed for a grant training session held at the Indian Agricultural Symposium (IAC).  Additionally, there are links posted for federal funding opportunities, as well as for private foundations, to help you research and/or find funding sources that are compatible with your organizations mission.

We will continue to add materials and resources to this page that can help to strengthen your grant writing capacity.
