SOCW 6070 WK 9 Discussion 2: Financial Capacity and Sustainability in Human Services
Receiving funding from a grant or other source of funds is a great accomplishment. Once the funding is received, the human services organization must be able to manage the funds effectively. The organization must also develop a plan to sustain the program after the funding period ends or the potential for change from the funded program may be limited.
For this Discussion, review the budget provided in the grant proposal that you discussed in Discussion 1 of this Week. Consider how you would prioritize budgetary needs and fundraise to continue covering costs of this program after the grant period has ended.
Post the following: 300 to 400 words not including the questions the questions are to be in bold then the answer. I will attach discussion 1
Post a brief description of the budget presented in the grant proposal you selected.
Describe how you might alter the budget after the grant ended or which budget items you would prioritize as you sought additional funding to continue the program.
Explain why you would make these changes or prioritize specific budget items. Finally, explain how you would fundraise to meet the budget priorities.
Support your post with specific references to the resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references.
