LSI has a winning approach to identify, develop, and submit grants for municipalities, universities, non-profit entities and for-profit companies. This approach involves the following critical steps:
- Initial Needs Identification and Analysis: LSI has developed a Funding Needs Analysis (FNA) quad chart to facilitate a collaborative approach between LSI and the client to determine the priorities and solutions that are most appropriate. The FNA serves as a tool to elicit responses that will best guide the selection of funding sources. Once complete, LSI will have a relevant roadmap to funding which will lead to a focused grant search.
- Research and Analytics: LSI excels in the research arena with an ability to find appropriate grant opportunities and analyze the requirements. Specifically, LSI will break down large solicitations and agency announcements and advise on content and direction of a proposal. Additionally, LSI conducts research in journals and other documents for works cited references included in proposals.
- Proposal Design and Management: LSI has created and implemented proposal processes and systems to produce submittal ready documents, including project management timelines, outlines, and work plan templates.
- Collaborative Approach and Professionalism: LSI has experience working with individuals in local government, academic institutions, and industry, and is uniquely qualified to manage diverse people and groups to generate winning proposals.
