Grants Administration

We can help you award and manage grants to non-profit entities that are best able to achieve impacts that align with your organizations mission and goals.  The CED Doctor will help you establish grant guidelines and an application process that will streamline efforts and help you select the most well deserving organizations.  Our professional services will help you achieve the outcomes that change communities and impact those most in need and at risk.


Grant Writing

Our services will help you put your best proposal forward and attract the funding you need to achieve  outcomes that best align with your organization's mission and goals.  We've won over $40 million in federal, state, foundation, and corporate grants to support community and economic development goals in low income and economically disadvantaged communities.


Grant Compliance, and Reporting

Maybe your organization is short on staff and can't handle the rigor or compliance, monitoring, and reporting.  Rather than walk away from potential grant dollars, or worse, risk having funds recaptured for non-compliance, let The CED Doctor manage the process for you.  We can help you establish protocols and develop the tools to make it easier to determine if you are meeting your program outcomes and we will make sure your reporting is done on time and through the appropriate methods established by your funders.


Federal Grants

The life cycle of federal grants and cooperative agreements consists of four phases: Pre-Award, Award, Post-Award, and Close Out.  You may not be able to accomplish this on your own.  There is great risk of disbarment if you don't understand the process and what you are required to do.  Don't risk it, contact the CED Doctor and let us help you win Federal Grants and insure you comply with all the requirements throughout the grant life cycle.


The Pre-Award phase begins with the announcement of funding opportunities for grants and involves the preparation, submission, and review of proposals to those announcements.

The Award phase involves making funding decisions and notifying awardees of their selection for a grant.
