Grant Writing

Elissa Brown and Associates offers successful grant-writing experience ranging from multi-million dollar federal initiatives to small operational support grants for nonprofit organizations.

Funding and Resource Development

Funding areas include both government agencies and foundations. “Grant writing is not descriptive writing. It is persuasive writing. You have to make a case that your program meets all the grant requirements, will accomplish its goals and will sustain itself in the future. You need to persuade the funders that your program will produce the kind of results they are trying to achieve”. Focus Areas:

  • Rural economic development
  • Renewable energy projects
  • Parks and trails
  • Water management plans and projects
  • Infrastructure
  • Brownfields environmental clean-up
  • Museums
  • Wildfire hazard mitigation
  • Watershed planning and management
  • Community facilities and programs
  • Educational programs
  • Plans and studies
  • Tribal programs and projects
