OVID Solutions recognizes that creating competitive grant applications starts well before a grant cycle opening. With many moving parts to account for throughout the cycle, it’s essential to stay organized. For this reason, we work with our clients to first develop a strategic plan. The plan’s focus can be any number of areas, including economic development, disaster recovery, resiliency, infrastructure investments – the list goes on. The plan, in a nutshell, is a wish list of large-scale projects that are important to the community and will need funding. Our team can then condense these ideas into a concise plan that directs the project with a clear vision. We encourage our clients to adopt or approve these plans as this increases the competitiveness of their applications by showing that the project is part of something bigger and has community buy-in.
