COMPREHENSIVE GRANT WRITING SERVICES

We understand that competing for funding through the Alabama First Class Pre-K program can be incredibly stressful. After working with several funded early childhood through post-secondary education programs at the local, state, and national level; Growth Strategies has developed strategies to make the work less daunting.

For the 2021-2022 First Class Pre-K Request for Proposals, we are currently working to build relationships with more operators of existing and planned pre-K centers. These veteran and aspiring Pre-K operators will serve as our comprehensive grant writing clients for whom we will develop plans to complete their grant proposal for this funding opportunity.  For a limited time, we are available to accept additional Alabama Pre-K centers as new clients for our comprehensive grant writing services for the Alabama First Class Pre-K program.

Below are a few additional services we are providing exclusively for Alabama's First Class Pre-K program applicants:

GRANT COACHING

In grant coaching,, Growth Strategies will provide your program with the tools and materials to draft your grant. Our experienced team members will coach your program staff through the process, leveraging internal expertise and providing tips for how to effectively and efficiently write grant applications.

Grant coaching also involves a critical feedback loop. As a program completes each narrative section of its proposal, Growth Strategies team members provide an in-depth review with feedback on content, format, competitiveness, and alignment with grant requirements and evaluation criteria. The goal is to help a program refine its narrative to ensure it is compliant and compelling.

By the end of the grant coaching process, programs are confident in their ability and equipped with the skills to respond to future grant opportunities. Building organizational capacity through grant coaching is a short-term investment that has long-term benefits extending far beyond the immediacy of First Class Pre-K funding.
