Pre‐planning and preparation help increase the competitiveness of an organization’s application.
Illinois ResourceNet TA providers work with organizations to prepare for future funding opportunities
by creating a two‐year timeline of expected release dates of Federal grant programs relevant to the
organization or collaborations working with IRN. Illinois ResourceNet develops a plan‐of‐action for
groups to identify grants that match the needs of the organization. TA providers will also locate future
funding for existing programs and potential new programs, and examine the resources offered by
Federal Agencies. In addition, the IRN TA provider will review proposals to ensure that the
organization meets the eligibility requirements, and has the necessary management and programmatic
capacity.
