Authors Soraya M. Coley and Cynthia A. Scheinberg de-mystify the grant writing process and provide a guide to writing that is as jargon-free and simple to use as possible.

Includes new topics : New chapters cover Using Technology in Proposal Development and Understanding the Agency and Funding Environment. Offers an accompanying Web site : A student study site helps readers create their own proposals and further develop and practice concepts in the book. Intended Audience This is an excellent guide for beginning grant writers as well as graduate courses such as Grantwriting and Fundraising for Social Work, Social Work Program Planning, and Social Work Administration in the department of social work.
