Our organization is a non-profit that focuses on affordable housing and neighborhood revitalization. We have a pretty good track record securing all types of grants for funding. Our grant writers who are competent don't seem to have any trouble writing the grants. The challenges that we face are the actual administration of the grant. We are currently administering a $464k grant to build three new homes and haven't gotten past the red tape of the state (we were awarded in September). My recommendations for others that are seeking funding would be to look for grants that are not state or government based unless necessary. They are slow to administer, where as other grants that our organization has won seem to be less regulated and easier to administer.
