We provide advice and assistance with identifying potential sources of funding, development of projects, budget preparation, completing applications, proposal editing and review, as well as other aspects of the proposal development process.  A Checklist to assist you in the process is included in the Proposal Development Guidebook. We serve as the facilitator to aid the principal investigator from project inception to closing of a funded grant or contract.
