Reviewer 784 - Grant Applicant - applied in 2016

We're a grantee of the Pew Fund for Health & Human Services in Philadelphia. Their process is very burdensome. The letter of intent is essentially a shorter version of your proposal. If you are invited to submit a full proposal, the requirements for "evidence based" or research based evaluation/outcomes are much too high for a foundation that states it is looking to fund direct service organizations. Only fairly sophisticated grant writers can make it through the process, shutting out many good organizations. On the plus side, the foundation does fund on-going operating costs in its areas of interest, which is a huge need in the Philadelphia region. If they simplified their processes & made more money available locally, The Pew Fund could become a national leader, demonstrating how a foundation that strives to lead nationally can also be a leader in its own backyard.
