How to Find a Good Grant Writer
Business Funding Tips

Proper preparation + professional grant writer = wining combination

Although hiring a professional grant proposal writer may improve your chance of receiving the government small business funding you are after, you should not leave everything in someone else’s hands.

To start, when considering a grant writer to hire, keep in mind that previous success does not mean much regarding the likelihood they’ll help you access additional financial assistance because all grant applications are different; those previously successful ventures are not the same as your small business. For all you know, the requirements of the grant applications you need to submit is much more complicated than anything the professional has previously done. This is why it is important that you do your own research and preparation -- you need to be capable of catching any mistakes or noticing something the professional writer overlooks. A business plan is ideal.

What to expect from a professional grant writer

Create and maintain contacts. Build a relationship with your contact at the funding agency before the proposal is submitted. This will help the writer know what is expected and will keep your application foremost in their thoughts when the time comes to review it. (You should also make use of this contact so they can put a name to the application, and so you can be sure your writer is on top of things.)

Research your business and industry. Although the writer should expect as much help and information from you as possible, they should not rely upon you for all the answers. They must conduct research and interviews as necessary to ensure the data they compile for the proposal is extensive and accurate.

Follow the indicated proposal guidelines. What is to be gained by hiring a professional grant writer who gets your proposal denied because they can’t follow the instructions provided by the funding agency? If the writer is

Provide updates. The grant writer should keep both you and the funding agency up to date, as required.

Understand the funding agency. Knowing the funding agency’s objectives and its reasons for providing small business financing can be as important to a grant proposal’s success as awareness of the guidelines. Knowing what the government’s purposes are provides insight into what they expect to see of a small business approaching them for money.

Turn in a professional writer’s work. When all is said and done, a professional grant writer is getting paid to write with skill as much as they are being hired for their understanding of the grant proposal process. The grant proposal they create on your behalf should use clear, on-point language, and proper grammar and spelling. If they do a poor job of it, this will reflect badly on you.

Improve on your provided details. A professional’s knowledge and experience should be as such that they can look over any details you provide them with and spot inconsistencies or errors. At the very least, they should notice when something sees out of sorts and know to ask you for clarification.
