Government grants often mean long waiting periods with your application pending
You have followed the best practices for submitting a grant proposal, including being grant ready, getting all of your registrations in order, bringing collaborative partners together and writing strong letters of commitment, not just support. The application has been submitted, and now the waiting begins. Government grants often mean long waiting periods with your application pending.
Given how long the application decision-making process can be, often, when an award is announced, the funded agency needs to pause to remember what it was that was proposed including the details of the work plan, budget, timeline, and collaborative partners. So much time has passed that the energy and momentum related to the newly funded project need to be reengaged and the initial award period runs slower than originally anticipated in the proposed work plan.
Rather than lose the momentum that you gathered during the application process, here are some tips to consider in order to continue the momentum of the proposed project while you wait to hear about the decision on your application.
