This application took longer than anticipated, but it was one of the most positive experiences I have had in 19 years of grant writing and nonprofit administration. United Way of Washtenaw County appears to be making every attempt to be inclusive. When my colleague and I read this RFP for measures to alleviate poverty, racism, and trauma, we independently said to each other, "This is a beautifully written and conceptualized RFP. They have done so much to make the application easier and more inclusive for applicants."

I found it a bit tough to get concrete answers from them about how to improve the strength of our application and have a better chance of being funded. However, I appreciate their commitment to equity in the County and think they do a good job of selecting a variety of projects to fund. Recently, they've started to require a DEI assessment, which can be a bit time-consuming, but every organization should have one at this point.

Schedule a meeting as early as you can in the process, so that you can follow up. Allow plenty of time for the online application, as it can take awhile to complete.
