  2. Draft a summary description of your grant idea and prepare a rough budget.
  3. Meet with C&F Office staff to discuss your grant project.
  4. Identify a potential funder(s).
  5. Develop the proposal summary for review by the C&F Grants Committee.
  6. Write proposal, assemble support materials, and finalize budget (coordinate timing and assistance with C&F Office staff).
  7. Provide full draft of proposal narrative and near-final budget for Grants Committee review two-weeks before your proposal deadline.
  8. Submit your proposal to funder (with assistance, as needed, from C&F Office).
