Selecting the Grant Writer
The Community Health Resource Center, Inc. had requested a grant writer on GrantWriterTeam for a housing grant. They accepted the bid of Michelle11, and she wrote a grant proposal for the Section 4 Capacity Building Grants. The nonprofit had found this grant on GrantWatch and requested the grant writer to apply for this grant on behalf of its organization.
Section 4 Capacity Grants
The grantor, Enterprise Community Partners, offers Grants to USA nonprofit community development and housing organizations. It is also available to tribes and tribal housing entities, and authorities serving rural areas. Funding is intended to enhance the capacity and ability to carry out affordable housing and community development activities that benefit low- and moderate-income families and persons.
Grant Writer’s Work
By viewing the grant on GrantWatch, the grant writer reviewed the eligibility requirements for an applicant and concluded that Community Health Resource Center was an eligible 501(c)(3) applicant for the grant.
Together, the client and the grant writer prepared a contract to work on the grant writing project.
The grant writer has written the proposal on behalf of her client, requesting funding for the African American Community Resource Ambassadors (CRA). The grant would help move families in rural communities from transitional housing to more permanent housing, while increasing life skills and financial stability.
Lo and behold, the client received an award letter from Enterprise Community Partners, the funding source, stating; “We are pleased to inform you that Community Health Resource Center, Inc. has been tentatively selected to receive a $35,000.00 award under Enterprise’s Section 4 Capacity Building Grants Program – Rural & Native American Initiative.”
The Client’s Testimony
With that, Fredell Buttler, of Community Health Resource Center, attested: “Michele11 has demonstrated an exceptional capacity to listen, interpret and articulate the priorities aligned with achieving desired objectives. She is extremely competent, personable and thoughtful in her approaches to enhance our efforts toward servicing Veterans and families within rural communities.“
