Its five elements contain information and resources that assist the grant seeker with developing their project, writing the grant proposal and managing the grant upon its award.
Task 5: Define Role for Collaborators
Guideline: Collaborators may be other entities within the grant seeker's organization, community groups, units of government or local businesses. The project plan should define each collaborators role and contribution to the project. A table listing collaborators with their agreed upon role and responsibility is a useful summary in the proposal's appendix. Asking each collaborator to write a letter of support for the grant proposal gives credence to their involvement. When requesting support letters, it is helpful to include a sample support letter with the request. The request letter should indicate whom the letter should be addressed to, the purpose of the letter and give guidance on its content. Collaborator support letters should be included in the proposal's appendix.
