Service Description

I provide grant writing services to nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and private small businesses. Upon securing grant funding my services are also available for management, administration, and evaluation upon request of the client.

My experience has been with primarily federal grant awards and foundation grantmakers. I also have some experience with state and local government grants. The majority of my work has been in agriculture, primarily creating and securing funding for job training, natural resource conservation, marketing, and public outreach and education. I am eager to expand my knowledge base and gather experience in other types of grant areas such as healthcare and education.

I have also served as a grant reviewer for a federal agency specializing in mareking and creating access to healthy foods for underserved communities. This experience has allowed me to gain insight into the many aspects of grant funding and has made me a much stronger grantwriter who knows what funders are looking for and knows the steps of their decision-making process.
