Question Preview: Magnetic Grant Budgets

Grant budgets can and do make or break grant applications. A good grant budget will attract the reviewer, it is clear,  answers questions, is (often) supported by a budget narrative and perfectly aligned with the grant narrative.

In other words,  a grant budget can be a points magnet, securing points by confirming that you have a solid project plan and a sustainable, fiscally responsible organization.
