FOR WRITING A FUNDING PROPOSAL
Use this section to describe the roles of the different people associated with your project and the importance of each.
Make sure to clarify how each of the roles are essential to the success of the project and each role clearly relates to operationalizing the methods you have described.
So what do you say about your key people? To start, make sure you include name, title, experience, and qualifications. Include other information if you feel it's important to the success of your project.
The descriptions of your personnel should let the funding agency know that you have excellent people who are committed to the project. You are not asking the funding agency to "trust" you. The validity for what you are proposing is directly related to the people who will work with the project.
Working together as a part of a team is something that funding agencies often like to see. Try making your project a team effort.
If you will be using a Steering Committee (Advisory Committee, Governing Board, etc.) to assist in your project, this is a good place to describe how it will be organized and who will be included.
A Steering Committee can be politically very helpful to you and your project. You can enlist the support of a variety of other agencies/organizations by placing a representative of these agencies/organizations on your Steering Committee.
Make sure you define the length of service for the members of the Steering Committee (so that membership can rotate and you can minimize the length of service of someone who may not be helpful!).
A Steering Committee can greatly help in identifying and linking to other resources.
A viable Steering Committee can suggest to a funding agency that the project has strong links to the local situation and the project has a good chance of continuing after the funding period is over.
