module 3 discussion: budget, budget narrative, & sustainability plan | HLTH 6207 – Grant Writing | Walden University

My project idea is developing a grant that will assist with disruptive/unruly high school students. Once this proposal is developed and funded it will assist schools and their teachers with methods that will allow them to be more in control of their classrooms which will ultimately promote effectiveness and a higher graduation rate. Better classroom management techniques will be more appealing to stakeholders and other organizations because it will make education in the public school system more marketable when compared to private schools.

Discussion: Budget, Budget Narrative, & Sustainability Plan

The budget is a crucial piece in the logical progression of developing your proposal. Look back at the other key components—needs statement, objectives, goals, methodology, and evaluation—and consider how these pieces must be represented in and supported by the budget. One can see why a funding reviewer might begin by looking at a budget. It should fully, clearly, and succinctly depict the story of the project. The budget narrative expands upon the line items of a budget, offering further explanation of costs and needs, as appropriate.

A sustainability plan explains to funders how you will continue a project after funding has been exhausted. Not only does this plan demonstrate a proactive stance toward your project, but it also provides a funder assurance that its interests will be served beyond the project timeframe.

In preparation for this Discussion, consider the components of your project that you have determined to this point. Review this module’s Learning Resources that focus on the budget, budget narrative, and sustainability plan. Note: You may select one of the two budget formats for your Discussion post: the budget example on pp. 162–163 or use the Sample Budget Worksheet on p. 328 as a guide to develop your budget.

Post the following to the Discussion board:

  • Your Budget, Budget Narrative, and Sustainability Plan. Include a brief description of your project to provide context to your colleagues.

Note: To be respectful of your peers in providing feedback that will be useful to their finalizing their Budget, Budget Justification/Narrative, & Sustainability Plan for Assignment 4, you are encouraged to post your responses to your colleagues by Day 5.

Be sure to support your analysis and conclusions with citations and references in APA format from the Learning Resources and your own research.
