Here are some examples of Grant Proposals to help create this proposal
School/Educational Setting: Orchard Middle School has over 50 at-risk students with a reading performance that directly affects their overall self-esteem and negative behavior issues. The school submitted a grant proposal to support development of a program to help all students with poor reading skills learn to read at grade level and increase their reading speed, comprehension, and reading attention span and overall sense of worth, esteem, and achievement. Studies have shown those who do better in school, fare better with stable mental health.
Outpatient Mental Health: The Open Arms Family Center requested a grant in the amount of $250,000 to contribute to the start-up funds for a family homeless shelter and mental health services. As an innovative, all-inclusive shelter program, the center aimed to provide for 10 families with children under the age of five who are experiencing homelessness. The center is committed to its mission of decreasing the overall number of homeless families in the Metro Boston area as well as working to break the cycle of homelessness.
Community Outreach: The purpose of Healthy Tomorrows is to stimulate innovative community-based programs that employ prevention strategies to promote access to health care for children and their families nationwide. HTPCP funding supports direct-service projects, not research projects. Healthy Tomorrows is designed to support family-centered initiatives that implement innovative approaches for focusing resources to promote community; define preventive child health and developmental objectives for vulnerable children and their families, especially those with limited access to quality health services; foster cooperation among community organizations, agencies, and families; involve pediatricians and other pediatric, child, and adolescent mental health professionals; build community and statewide partnerships among professionals in health, education, social services, government, and business to achieve self-sustaining programs to ensure healthy children and families. Healthy Tomorrows requested a grant proposal for $10,000 to conduct a needs analysis for a meal delivery program to serve its less mobile community members.
