The second part of the book begins where most books on grant writing end. Gajda and Tulikangas lead you through the steps to take immediately after a grant is awarded and the steps needed for long-term sustainability. They show you how to negotiate a budget, develop a media plan, and establish an organizational structure. They explain how to create an evaluation plan and how to develop indicators of success. The result is a clear blueprint for success as a grant writer and project manager. By book's end, you will enthusiastically agree with the authors: You can do this!
