Grant Writer Request #03082020C

Primary Purpose:
I don't have the time and experience to seek out and write grant applications. I believe I'm losing out on financial opportunities and I need help accessing them.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
We provide court-ordered substance abuse evaluations, outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment programs, and psycho-educational classes to adult offenders in Canadian County (central Oklahoma). Since we have a specialized certification to provide domestic violence classes to perpetrators, our clients travel in from far western Oklahoma as well, resulting in a 3,400 square mile reach. Our annual budget is $200,000 and we have 8 employees, most of whom work part-time. We are seeking grant dollars to fund our outpatient services and to hire a Clinical Director. We also need to remodel a space in order to have an additional group room, waiting area, and 2 counselor offices to handle the influx of new clients.
Project Description:
Provide your hourly rate for research and locating grants for: 5 hours per week for 3 weeks.   For a total of 15 hours.
I'm not even sure if this is what I need.

Current Revenue:
We accept Medicaid and private insurance for our individual and family counseling services. All other assessments, classes and groups are self-pay by the individual client (e.g., $150 per assessment, $25 per week per group). We have no other revenue streams at this time.
Grant History:
We have previously applied for a grant(s).
I have completed a number of grant applications in the past. But over the last 2 years, we've been rapidly expanding our services and undergoing audits for agency certification and I've had to time to even look for grants.
We have previously received $80,000 in grant funds.
We have a copy of our previously written grant application(s).
We used to be a member of the United Way of Central Oklahoma and received appx. $15,000 over 3 years from them. We received a $30,000 grant and a $25,000 grant from the Ashbrook Foundation which is locally based in our county. We received a $5,000 grant from CK Energy. I have copies of these and other grant applications.
We do not have a fundraising packet.
We have an agency mission statement: We have a mission statement, vision statement, and agency values. We also have agency goals and written history. We also have access to a wide range of local statistics. I believe I can help provide pertinent information that can increase our chances of achieving a grant.
