#21: Grant Writing Guidance From the Horse's Mouth

HHS' SAMHSA issues RFP after RFP. Seems like it should be easy to capture some of their funding, doesn't it? But the competition is fierce.

I'd written more than one SAMHSA grant application before I discovered this manual. What more could a grant writer want than the funder providing the skinny on just what matters to them? Here it is, straight from the horse's mouth.

You'll also find links to grant opportunities, statistics, news... a site worth visiting periodically if you provide services or write grants for the substance abuse, mental health, or prevention fields.

Developing Competitive SAMHSA Grant Applications - Table of contents: "Developing Competitive SAMHSA Grant Applications Participants Manual"

Where did that expression "straight from the horse's mouth" come from. by the way???

Hello! I just discovered your blog...I was just hired as a grant writer (in training!) for a non-profit in LA. As far as the horse's mouth--- I believe they check horses mouths for the condition of teeth. Something about the health of the horse (or maybe teeth are really important?).The seller can talk about how healthy the horse is all they want, but that the horse's mouth can't lie (straight from the source).

The similar to a D ring but the rings are soft and oval shaped. It's the most gentle bit for your horse and it's designed not to pinch the corners of the horse's mouth
