There are proposal resources which can help you develop and write a successful proposal. You are encouraged to use these tutorials and the “Introduction to Risk Management” which can lead you through the development and identification of a stronger set of participant results/outcomes, as well as to strengthen your program delivery, should your proposal be funded. Do take the time to read “Documenting Success through Performance Measures” – a short article tutorial on how to plan and design your program; which includes a solid rational for your effort and how you intend to measure the achievement of producer results across the life of the project.
