For those of you struggling with writing government grants, the Office of Justice Programs has a tutorial that can make the process easier. You'll find everything you need at their Grants 101 site. Best of all, much of the information is applicable to grantwriting in general, particularly in the proposal writing section. And there's a Toolkit with sample documents and other resources, as well. So even if you're embarking on a local community or private foundation grant, it's worth perusing all the same.
