Mechanism that social workers can utilize to provide remedies for identified community social problems.

A grant proposal, is one mechanism that social workers can utilize to provide remedies for identified community social problems. Grants for pilot programs often serve as models for future needed policy/program decisions.

You must complete a grant proposal that creates a program or service for a small town or rural residents that addresses as yet unmet social welfare needs or challenges facing rural families and/or
communities. The proposed program or service must be designed to improve or enhance social well-being and social, economic, or environmental justice at the local level.

The proposal can address an issue/problem created by existing policy(ies) (e.g., unintended consequences), or can address emerging needs/issues for which policy may need to be developed and for which your grant may serve as a “model” solution to the problem/issue.

The Grant Proposal should include:
A. Cover Letter.
B. Common Grant Application Format Cover
Sheet.
C. Executive Summary.
D. Narrative (See below for items to include) and
E. Budget Narrative and Budget Form
