I suggest that you read the pdf of the RFP very carefully. Once I started writing the grant, I read the RFP again and got very good clarification on my questions, just by learning the Nellie Mae mission points.

Pros

Culturally sensitive

Reviewer 7606 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2020

This new approach is very open ended which carries its pros and cons. The pros are that it allows a lot of freedom, and it's stated that they are accepting of any past information or proposal as a narrative, but in a situation like ours where this wasn't the case and building a submission from ground up, it almost seemed overly daunting because there was minimal direction.

Granted [pun intended], this is a subjective experience and now that we've experienced it once it makes it a lot easier and more inviting, be prepared to well in advance have numerous readers and eyes on proposal and thought partnership on supplemental material to get your point across on such an open ended approach.

Pros

Positive leader in the field, Gives more than money, Risk taker, Culturally sensitive, Friendly, Builds relationships, "Gets" nonprofits and issues, Openminded, Responsive
