Select one of the topics below or something of interest to you. You will prepare a brief grant application (4-5 Pages Double-spaced including your financial budget table and budget narrative) to address the following items in the grading rubric. The topic should be focused on a specific geographic community and target population, for example “Addressing obesity in high school students in the Mid Valley school district”.

You need your financial projection to “breakeven” in terms of revenues = expenses…. so your grant funding $ request is going to be the balancing “revenue” number you need to add in if you want to show the grant request as a revenue item. Alternatively, you can show that existing revenues are greater than projected expenses and you will be budgeting a “loss”. This loss amount becomes your grant $ request that you are asking for) Budget Narrative – 1 point (Detail of how you ended up with the line items in the budget)
