The federal government and related agencies make available billions of dollars each year in the form of grants and loans. They are effectively looking for qualified applicants who can meet their requirements, complete their application process, present a worthy project or program for funding, and abide by their rules if the grant or loan is approved.
It all seems straightforward enough until a party unfamiliar with the process wants to apply. Many of the grants and loans require expertise in financial management, program evaluation, and project management. Grant writing is a skill and an art. Managing a grant is administratively challenging and opportunities for non-compliance abound.
