Project Description


The “Project Description” component of your grant application describes, in concrete detail, what you plan to do with the money awarded by the grant and how you will know your program is working. Writing a successful Project Description requires having already written a strong Problem Statement. This component should contain the following parts:

Goals & Objectives (Lesson 8 / Step 4)

Methods (Lesson 9 / Step 5)

Evaluation (Lesson 11 / Step 6)

Timeline (Lesson 9 / Step 5)


As needed, find relevant supporting information from credible sources and be sure to cite them according to MLA Style or APA Style in both parenthetical citations and a Works Cited page.
