Grant Writing

*AS WITH ALL OTHER ASSIGNMENTS, THIS PROPOSAL IS FICTITIOUS AND INTENDED TO BE USED FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.
Background: You are applying for a play therapy grant through the Children Are the Future (CAF) Foundation. The $45,000 grant will be used to support the salary of a certified Children’s Play Therapist ($40,000) and to purchase project supplies (ex. play therapy toys, etc.) valued at $5,000. The (hypothetical foundation) CAF prioritizes funding requests for innovative solutions to child welfare issues.
Instructions: When crafting your proposal, be sure to explain how play therapy can improve health outcomes for children exposed to domestic abuse. Use research to support this claim (and include related footnote citations). Your proposal should be approximately 6-7 double-spaced pages. (Use Times New Roman, 12 point font).

Aside from the project budget, you are not required to submit any program financials.
One section asks for your logic model. This is different from the shelter logic model you previously created. This one applies SPECIFICALLY to this new (Children’s Play Therapy) project. You’ll need to identify ONE outcome related to children’s play therapy. In the process, you’ll need to also explain how you will capture the outcome data (ex. parent surveys, etc.?). Be sure to establish a target (ex. 80%.).
Include TWO appendix items (ex. your hypothetical board member list (Appendix A) and a mock letter of support from the principal of the local elementary school (Appendix B). Leave the signature field blank). Your cover letter should appear at the FRONT of the document. You may also leave the signature field blank on the cover letter for this assignment. (The cover letter and appendices are not included in the 6-7 page length requirement.)
