Each full program proposal requires its own research for Statement of Need, Target Population, Program Description, and budget.
II. (g) Consultation and Meetings
As a part of your proposal package, you will receive 5 courtesy bi-weekly consultation meetings (up to 60 minutes each). This includes (1) your the initial consultation where we brain-storm your project, (2) meeting 2, where we discuss your program and budget in detail, (3) meeting 3 where we review your proposal draft, (4) meeting 4, where we close-out grant-writing, (5) meeting 5, where we offer you support in completing applications on your own. Barring urgent questions that necessitate an immediate response, we ask that you hold all questions for our scheduled meeting appointments where you will have CONSULTANT's undivided attention. For CLIENTS that wish to have additional one-on-one sessions with us for nonprofit matters that do not concern the proposal project, we offer consultation at a reduced rate of $90 per hour during the contract period and up to 30 days after the delivery of the final proposal draft. Thereafter, our normal consultation rate $180 per hour applies. *This rate is subject to change.
Additional Services are invoiced separately.

Fundamental changes to the project's direction or new information after the initial briefing will be considered outside the scope of included revisions and may necessitate additional fees.
