Grant Readiness and Business Preparation
Don’t wait until the grant opens – let us help you do your homework! From CVs and MOUs to capability statements, bid libraries and project plans, ProposalPro helps you get ready for grant applications sooner.
Grant Decision-Making Advice
Not every grant you’re eligible for, is the right match for your business or organisation. We extend our free bid/no-bid advice to help you increase your win rate, and make ‘where to play’ decisions that drive success.
We support your business/organisation to stand out from the pack by communicating its capabilities and experience , building a case for funding that engages and inspires decision makers, and positioning your application as the best choice for a grant opportunity.
Completing grant proposals in-house often leads to difficulty at the grant review stage; when your in-house grant writer reviews their own work, they can lack the distance to pick up on mistakes or room for improvement; when the reviewer is a colleague or manager, they may lack knowledge of best-practice grant writing, or assume an external reader has organisational knowledge.
At ProposalPro, we don’t just offer “another pair of eyes”- we have years of experience in supporting organisations to secure grants; we provide an informed, professional external point of view that can help your business or organisation to get over the line.
