10 Steps To Write Your First Public Health Grant:

Note: A large majority of state-based public health positions are funded through a federal grant.

1. Review the grant application documentation

2. Copy and paste application into new document

3. Delete irrelevant sections but keep required sections/wording

4. Create and bold section headings then italicize first sentence of reworded description for each section.

5. Setup, start brainstorming, researching, and documenting what’s needed for each required section. 💡

6. Don’t hold back on how awesome YOU, your team, your program, your partners, and your agency truly are. TOOT THAT HORN!!! 🎷

7. Think like a grant reviewer as you write each session. Make sure your application flows so that the required sections are easy to find and simple to understand. 

8. Include a needs assessment, evaluation plan with a logic model, letters of support from partners to give your application that extra wow factor. 

9. Review the funding agency website for previously funded projects before compiling the budget and justification section.

10. If possible, send an email or snail mail letter to the agency 30 days in advance to let them know your application will be on the way 5 days before their deadline.

Bonus: Ask agency about any technical assistance, application Q&A period, & project officer contact details.

The more details you have, the better your tailored application.

featured Resources


The pre-application process is the act of pulling together any and all creative ideas, online resources as well as the limitless possibilities in preparing the grant application. In preparation for the submission of the application, a thorough review of the grant guidelines and research on previously funded projects is conducted for a success program plan with funding.

needs assessment & program plan

A needs assessment is a systematic process for determining and addressing needs, or “gaps” between current conditions and desired conditions or “wants”. The discrepancy between the current condition and wanted condition must be measured to appropriately identify the need. A program plan is the outline of events and activities that your members follow to reach the goals of the organization. 

budget & justification

The budget justification is a categorical description of the proposed costs of the program plan. Generally, it explains staffing and supply/service consumption patterns, the methods used to estimate/calculate (including escalation or inflation factors) and other details such as lists of items that make up the total costs for each part of the program from start to finish.
