Federal Grant Technical Assistance Services Program
HANO is continuing to offer the Grants Technical Assistance Services program for nonprofits pursuing or planning to pursue a federal grant in the near future. Since the program launched in March 2021, we have accepted and worked with two rounds of applicants on a robust set of federal projects. We launched round three of the program in January 2023 and welcome new applications at the link below.
For this new round, we are asking participating organizations to pay a modest stipend of $100 per project for any HANO members and $200 per project for any non-HANO members. This will help us increase the resources available to each participant.
Testimonials from applicants:
As a local nonprofit, we are very clear about the need in our community and how to deliver the services. What HANO helped us to do was get connected to funding that builds a stronger foundation for the work that lies ahead. Our participation in this program will have significant benefits for the years to come in our community. Mahalo HANO!
The coaching under this HANO program helped us coalesce our concept and develop a strategic approach to our grant methodology. For small organizations like ours, this assistance is invaluable.
Without the support of HANO GTAS, we would not have been successful in securing the critical funding needed to reach more families who need help.
The expert grants assistance from the GTAS team helped us spot gaps in the application documents that we could address before submission and put the most competitive package forward
…we found the process extremely worthwhile. It helped us understand that we need to think more strategically and start earlier
Yes, we will definitely submit a federal grant next year and would like to apply for GTAS assistance which really helped us to feel confident we have the ability to develop a strong proposal in the future.
The coaching process made it easier to understand what needed to be done and provided me the confidence needed to prepare and work through the 2nd part of the grant submission. In the event that we do not get funded, the experience gained is priceless that will allow us to apply for future grants.
