The program design section of the grant application narrative is by far the most important narrative section in your grant proposal. It’s the section that divides the “I don’t have a clue” grant writers from the “I have this in the bag” grant writers. The coaching and examples in this chapter show you how to write an award-winning program design section that’s all about your vision — as in the positive changes you’ll bring about when you win that grant award!

Surveying the Components of a Good Program Design Section
