Grant Writing and Reports
Grant Writing, Community Assessments, and Outcomes Reports
The children and families in your community rely on you to provide high-quality care and education. Well-written proposals and reports coupled with strong program design are essential for your program’s growth and sustainability.
In collaboration with grantees, we write Community Assessments with an equity lens, Wage Studies, and applications for funding.
Foundations for Families is a valuable resource to you and your community partners as you navigate grants, conduct community assessments, and report outcomes.
We provide comprehensive and strategic grant writing services for DRS (Designation Renewal System), EHS-CCP (Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership), Head Start/Early Head Start and other funding opportunities at the federal and state levels.
We have a remarkable success rate writing and supporting proposals that are awarded funding.
Comprehensive Grant Writing is available to applicants in need of a dedicated team to manage the application process and draft the proposal.
Grant Coaching services are provided to applicants who will draft their own proposal but need assistance with project management, program design, and input and feedback.
We also offer Quality Assurance Reviews in which we provide detailed reviews, feedback and edits to your proposal to ensure it is highly competitive and meets all required criteria. We work you to identify the right level of support for your program.
We work with programs to plan, coordinate, and conduct community assessments, as required by federal Head Start Program Performance Standards (HSPPS). We can collect and research the necessary data for the community assessment and partner with your team to write the assessment. We also assist with annual updates to your existing community assessment, as required by HSPPS.
We thoroughly understand the outcomes reporting process and can help your organization meet federal or other funder requirements.
Amy Augenblick has worked with our agency on many successful grant applications, most recently on our Head Start’s DRS application with a re-organized program. Not only is she an excellent writer, she also has an encyclopedic knowledge of Head Start and Early Childhood and is able to structure the proposal process in a way that is thorough and yet manageable. She has the experience and the political savvy to give guidance on questions that may be unspoken in the RFP, and how to demonstrate a program’s quality and impact.Karen Allen
The Office of Head Start Regional program and finance officials commented that the quality of our proposal was among the most well written and noted how clearly and succinctly the narrative and budget sections aligned. They indicated that because of the quality of the proposal, it was being fast tracked for funding and startup. Thank you, Foundations, for Families – Linda, Kelly and Amy!Ruthann House
