Grant Writing Assistance for Kansas Non-Profits
With support from the Kansas Health Foundation (KHF), CPPR is offering free grant writing and technical assistance for nonprofit organizations, state associations/coalitions, school districts, state agencies and tribal councils/communities in Kansas.
- Organizations must be seeking federal funding or national philanthropic grants in one of KHF’s priority areas, which are racial equity, criminal justice reform, civic engagement, and enhanced family support programming. CPPR will work with potential applicants to ensure alignment with these priority areas.
- Priority will be given to nonprofit organizations. State and local government agencies may be eligible for grant-writing support for extremely competitive grants or funding opportunities that share the same focus as KHF priority areas.
Our team tailors support to meet the group’s identified needs. Our approach leverages what already exists in your community and to ensure the greatest impact, we work with you to customize a plan that meets your unique challenges and circumstances.
How to access grant-writing assistance
- Identify a national RFP or FOA that aligns with your organization’s needs and is consistent with KHF’s priority areas.
- Contact CPPR as soon as possible to discuss the proposal’s alignment with KHF priority areas, assess organizational readiness for preparing a proposal, and determine needs and other capacity-related concerns in the grant-writing process.
- Select a lead representative from your organization who will work with CPPR during proposal development. While multiple people may be involved, CPPR requests a single point-of-contact to streamline communication and decision making.
- Feel free to reach out to CPPR to share information about your funding needs. While we can’t always find the perfect funding opportunity for your project, we regularly monitor grant announcements and can watch for possible opportunities.
