Fred Rogers, of the famed Mr. Rogers Neighborhood PBS show, told his television audience, “Often when you think you’re at the end of something, you’re at the beginning of something else.” Mr. Rogers and I are going to take you on a guided research tour to Grant Sustainability Land.
We all know that question that provokes fear in some: ‘How will you sustain the project once grant funding ends?’
As with any research, the first resource you should examine is your own knowledge and skills concerning grant sustainability. I look forward to the sustainability question — as it can set my grant application above others. I use the “keep it simple” approach when tackling this issue and formulate a plan of action with the grant team.
