Grant Writer Request #02152018A

Primary Purpose:
We would like a grant to help create and sustain 2 jobs at our Thrift Store. We need our store to pay for a full time manager and assistant manager. We are also run by volunteers who work 1-2 hours per week. Currently we have approximately 10 part time volunteers who help us each week. The store manager is also in charge of working with the Board of Directors to start a home and all the details that go with starting a home for single pregnant women.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
We are planning to raise funds to start a home for single pregnant women who have no place to live. We have been a nonprofit store since 2011. We are in need of writing a grant for a full time person who is running the store as a manager and a grant to create a full time job for our assistant manager.
Project Description:
Provide your hourly rate for research and locating grants for: 10 hours per month for 6 months.   For a total of 60 hours.
It is so hard to know how much extra time we need to have someone research for grants and how long it would take, We would need to know how much money we could pay per hour to hire this person.
Provide your hourly rate to set up and manage my UHelp page: 10 hours per month for 6 months.   For a total of 60 hours.
