Many grant applications ask a sustainability question, which often looks like this: “How will you continue the program after the grant funds end?”
The sustainability question is a stumbling block for many grant professionals. Federal, and state government grants, as well as foundation and corporate grants all ask a sustainability question in one form or another.
The seemingly easy answer is usually, “I’ll just work harder, do my job better and write more grants.” However, this answer will not get you any points and in some cases, end your grant proposal’s review entirely.
This webinar will address the common pitfalls, analyze the stumbling blocks, evaluate the importance of “the question,” discuss sustainability plans and offer specific solutions for your next grant proposal.
