One benefit of the government grants website is that it includes a “Grants 101” training section that explains most of what you need to know to find, apply for and win a grant. One section of this tutorial is called the “Grant Lifecycle Timeline.” This is essentially a description of the Grants Process customized for government grants. For each Lifecycle Step you can see a description of both what the Grant-Maker does and what the Applicant does. Though it is specific to the government grants process it is nicely laid out and useful for understanding grants in general. You will notice that it is broken into three sections, for the Per-Award Phase, the Award Phase and the Post Award Phase. Though you may feel as if you have done a lot of work to get to the Award Phase, note that the title of the second part of that phase is “Beginning the Hard Work.” You’ve won the award and your work is just begun!

 +While the government's website does do a very thorough job of detailing all current government grants available, it can be frustrating to use if you are looking for a more personal or small organization grant. That doesn't mean you shouldn't review it, just have realistic expectations. And remember that there are many, many foundations which also give out millions annually in grants. You can learn a ton about them in our review of [[write_foundation_grants_fast|Write Foundation Grants Fast]]. There is a formula you can use and it can make all the difference in helping you win a grant. And it's an easy read, check it out.
