I just finished grant season. What should I be doing while I await grant announcements?

Congratulations on the end of grant season.  Now is a good time to do the following while you wait:

  • Write thank you notes to the project partners included in your applications, recognizing them for their support and providing a general timeframe for when award announcements will be made.
  • Organize your files so you have final copies of all the applications you submitted in one place.
  • Make a list of any new organizations or entities you would potentially like to partner with in the future and schedule time to meet with them in the early fall to begin conversations.
  • Schedule a planning meeting in the fall so that you can begin to identify priorities for next grant season.
