UWWC's grant process is the easier, yet most comprehensive, process that I've experienced as a grant writer in Washtenaw County. The application is not easy, but thoughtful, and the questions are straightforward and relevant. Continue asking for feedback on the process because it absolutely has helped.

They are good to work with. Definitely take advantage of the opportunity to talk with UWWC staff before applying to make sure they are supportive of your idea. Expect a heavy emphasis on leaders of color.
