   • Best practices for LOIs - A "Letter of Interest" (aka "Letter of Inquiry," aka "Letter of
      Intent," aka LOI) is often the required first step in approaching a private foundation or
      other funder for a grant. Read on...
   • Proposal advice from a foundation grants officer - Foundation staff generally have
      many more proposals to choose from than grants to award. The impression your
      proposal makes on those staff people is a crucial element in determining whether or not
      you'll get one of those grants. Read on...
   • How to view a winning federal grant proposal - Q. I understand we have the right
      to request a review of a past winning grant proposal from a federal agency. Can you
      recommend an approach that would get results? A. Funded federal grant proposals are
      public information and can be requested with a Freedom of Information Act request.

   • Donor-advised funds outpace all other grant sources - Donor-advised funds are
      now the fastest growing source of potential grants. These funds, created by donations

   • Foundation Research for Nickels & Dimes - No one needs to know about or track
      the nearly 100,000 grant-making foundations in the United States. Even large
      organizations may need to track only 100 or 200 foundations; for smaller organizations,
      there may be only 20 to 40 foundations with potential. While the world of foundations
      does change, the extent of that change is small from year to year, and the speed is
      relatively slow. Read on...
   • Asking for help from co-workers - It may be your responsibility to write the proposal,
      but to prepare the narrative and budget sections, you'll probably need to ask your co-
        workers for some essential data. Why not make this process easier for everyone? Read

    •   IRS has good news for late-filing charities - If your charitable organization has
        failed to comply with IRS annual filing requirements, you may still be able to salvage

    •   Don't let a bad budget doom your proposal - Even if your proposal narrative is
        outstanding, you can still lose out if you're up against stiff competition and your budget
        is open to question. Read on...
    •   Give the money and run? - Most nonprofits expect to feel continued economic stress
        through year-end, but the lack of communication and direction they're getting from their
        foundation funders is troubling. Read on...
    •   The new face of corporate charity - The days when businesses made grants to
        support a variety of unrelated causes are over. That's the message from the June 2010
        meeting of the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy. Read on...
    •   Federal grants for individuals and small businesses - "How do I get a grant to
        start a new business?" "I've heard there is government money I can get. Can individuals
        get federal grants?" These questions frequently pop up in e-mails and calls to The
        Grantsmanship Center, and they're heard by all our trainers at one time or another.
        Although most federal grant funds go to not-for-profit organizations and state and local
        governments, there are just enough exceptions to make the issue confusing. Read on...

     • Private Foundation Funding Benefits from Wealthy Donor Drive - A new
         philanthropic initiative spearheaded by billionaires Bill Gates and Warren Buffett recently
         announced that approximately 40 extremely wealthy individuals and families have
         committed to donating the majority of their fortunes to private charities and foundations.
         For grantseekers who rely in whole or in part on funding from private organizations,
         those commitments raise the possibility of long-term increases in endowments and, by

•    GAO Sees Lean Times Ahead for State, Local Governments - Adding to the
     drumbeat of pessimistic financial projections issued by several government and private
     groups earlier this summer, the Government Accountability Office has weighed in on the
     future of state and local government finances in a comprehensive report that examines
     likely funding trends over the next half-century. And while most state and local officials
     are focused on the immediate challenge of closing budget holes in fiscal year 2011 or

•   Grantees Still Working to Spend Last Year's EECBG Funds - A recent report from
    the Department of Energy illustrates just how hard it can be to get an ambitious new
    grant program off the ground, particularly when state and local governments are
    hamstrung by tight budgets and personnel shortages. Even economic stimulus grants
    designed to save jobs and get the economy moving can create new headaches for the
    cities, counties and states they are intended to aid.
•   Senate Clears $4.5B Child Nutrition Measure - When the House returns to
    Washington later this month, it will likely take up a major reauthorization of the federal
    child nutrition programs, which cleared the Senate by a unanimous vote just before
    senators recessed for the summer district work period.
•   HUD Announces First Installment of 'Green Retrofit' Grants - Although the
    Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded 75 percent of the funding it
    received through last year's stimulus package within days of the law's enactment, the
    department still has hundreds of millions of stimulus dollars awaiting award decisions.
    Last week, HUD continued that process, announcing the first $100 million in competitive
    grants and loans for its new Green Retrofit Program, which funds energy efficiency
    upgrades for multifamily public housing projects.
•   Breaking down the FY 2010 SAFER grant competition, including changes from
    previous years; take advantage of grantor agencies' increasing emphasis on project
    evaluations; and as always, your weekly Grant Alert, summarizing the latest grant and
    regulatory announcements.
•   Price Tag of State Aid Package Includes Food Stamps, Broadband Grants - The
    $26 billion package of Medicaid and education job funding signed into law earlier this
    month marked a rare victory for congressional Democrats' job creation agenda. But it is a
    victory that comes at the expense of other key Democratic priorities, and underscores
    the increasingly difficult politics of deficit spending in Washington these days.
•   SIF Grants Awarded - The Corporation for National and Community Service has
    awarded $123 million in Social Innovation Fund grants to address issues of economic
    opportunity, youth development and school support, and healthy futures in underserved
    areas.
•   Federal Register 2.0 - The public can now test out an updated, Web-based prototype

  National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS)
• The Office of Justice Programs’ (OJP) role as the largest grant-making agency in the
  Department of Justice brings with it tremendous responsibility and a remarkable
  opportunity to strengthen our criminal and juvenile justice systems. The billions of dollars
  we administer every year support activities in every sector of the field and every corner
  of the country. OJP must rigorously enforce a grant application process that is fair and
  accessible and a grant administration process that ensures funds are spent responsibly.
  In this issue, you’ll meet one of our many grant managers who works with local
  practitioners to make sure OJP is spending taxpayer dollars wisely. These grant
  managers are an essential partner for criminal and juvenile justice practitioners
  throughout the country.
• Recovery Act Job Gains - OJP’s grantees are using American Recovery and
  Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) funds to create and retain jobs. More than 10,000 jobs
  were created or retained from January to March 2010, according to data reported by
  OJP’s highest funded grantees and compiled by OJP’s Office of the Chief Financial Officer.
• Grantees Receive Compliance Assistance - "Innovative" and "administrative" are
  two terms that are not often used together. OJP’s grant managers are hoping to change
  that. They are helping states, tribes, and localities comply with grant requirements by
  providing administrative assistance that helps practitioners remain focused on delivering
  quality programs. If you need assistance with grant monitoring, please contact us.
