A grant budget is often the first component of a proposal reviewed by a grant maker as the budget by itself should tell the complete story of the proposed project or program. Knowing that it such an important part of your application, how do you as a grant professional ensure that your budget is adding to the story of your grant proposal, and not detracting to the impression you make on your reviewers or your overall score? We asked the #grantchat community and their answers and definitions didn’t disappoint! Here are what seasoned grant professionals define a successful grant budget as:
