How the Program Design Narrative Can Make or Break Your Funding Effort

The narrative section for your program design or plan of action is the most important section of any grant application or proposal. Are your goal statements obvious to the funding decision makers? What happens if the funders require ‘Smart’ goals instead of ‘Smart’ objectives? Do you know how to write your goals and/or objectives in the ‘Smart’ format? What else should be included in this section of the application or proposal?

In this webinar, expert speaker Dr. Beverly Browning will review the critical points you must include in your grant application's program design narrative. This must-include components have been proven to lead to higher levels of consideration for grant awards. The session will help you gain increased awareness about the importance of using best practice models to replicate or create a hybrid model to address the needs identified in your statement of need.
