Grant Writing

The UMVRDC has a tremendous amount of expertise and history in writing successful grants for units of government in the region. We are available to research funding options, field questions about eligibility and requirements, connect you with federal or state grant program contacts, complete grant applications, and manage the technical requirements of spending the grant dollars once awarded. Grant writing and management services are done on a fee for service basis. A customized cost estimate can be provided once a grant program has been selected and UMVRDC staff has met with you to discuss the project in detail.

The UMVRDC’s Hedgehog Grants are available to subsidize the cost for our grant writing services to make it even more affordable to you!
