Indiana Prevention Resource Center (IPRC)

About Grant Consulting

We provide grants assistance to ATOD prevention practitioners in Indiana, including:

  • Assistance in identifying potential funding sources
  • Guidance in locating potential partner agencies and consultants
  • Review and critique of proposal drafts
  • Information on program planning and proposal writing
  • Training in proposal development and strategic fundraising skills

Consultation and training are provided without charge to Indiana-based prevention programs. Participants in the proposal-writing courses pay a nominal charge for meals and refreshments.

Intensive grants assistance (up to 200 hours) is available for organizations that have the capacity to manage large-scale, sustainable prevention programs, especially ones that have community-wide scope and have the potential for replication in other Indiana communities.

The conclusion also starts on a separate sheet. The headings of the structural elements of the abstract (introduction, conclusion, bibliography, chapter titles) are drawn up uniformly. Formatting is centered. Usually uppercase 500 word essay for bold thesis. Additional use of bold (bold) is possible. It is not allowed to design the name of one element in upper case, another - in lower case. Exception: Paragraphs and clauses, if they do not begin on separate sheets, may be in lower case and bold when formatting chapter titles in upper case. In this case, they are considered part of the chapters. It is better to clarify this nuance with the teacher.
