Understanding of the sponsor/ funding sources requirements
Alignment of your budget with your proposal narration
In addition to the budget, most sponsors/ funding sources want a grant proposal narrative explaining the goals of the funding program and the task execution.
Tip: Improve your chances of getting approved! Make sure your grant budget is consistent with your grant narration. For instance, if the funding proposal is about is a year-long program, your narrative should clearly state that the program will run for one year, and your budget should reflect the expenses for this time period.
