Grant writer Judy, has been writing grants and responding to Requests for Proposals for a very long-g-g-g time, well over 15 years). She has done practically everything under the sun... from social services to work force development, education and health-related grants, to name a few. This includes grants for start-up to existing and expanding organizations, as well as domestic and international projects (US AID). Although Judy has significant experience with foundation grants, she much prefers writing government grant applications, which tend to have higher award ceilings than many foundations.

Her successful grant awards range from $25,000 to $2 million. Judy's first grant ever yielded $500,000 for a start-up agency building a collaboration of services with 35 other existing agencies. (Rather ambitious, but it worked out!) Her second favorite grant was a $400,000 grant for a refugee program. This was a grant source to which she'd never written a grant submission, so reading through the lengthy guidelines was time-consuming (par for the course for government grants). For most of her clients, Judy's done a little bit of program planning in tandem with grant writing, either to make their program fit the grant, make it more appealing or simply competitive. Because of her knack for doing this, Judy has typically gotten most of my business through word of mouth. Judy considers word of mouth referrals
just about the greatest compliment about her work product that anyone could give her! Since Judy's very good at research (my degrees paid off at long last), she's certainly not daunted by reading lengthy government guidelines for new grant areas. And actually, many of her grants at some point or another were the first of their kind that she had written, until they became part of my grant repertoire. Here's a list of some of the different types of grants written:
