Professional developers can help administrators and technology teams make the best use of funding sources. Most funders' agendas encourage partnerships with schools that meet their goals. You can assist with identifying a possible funder:

    "The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act and Title II funds require schools to assess teachers' proficiency and use of technology and develop a plan to address these needs. "National Foundations provide specific criteria but there are so many, yet so few that may be appropriate for your program. The Foundation Center offers a usable interface for finding specific grants. (http://fdcenter.org) "Family, Community, and Corporate Foundations offer their guidelines on their specific websites. Deadlines vary and many are for a certain geographic area, so read the guidelines carefully. "Federal grants such as the National Science Foundation (www.nsf.gov) and National Endowment of the Humanities (www.neh.gov) have a variety of grants with different deadlines. Refer to their guidelines and the use of FastLane to submit proposals.

Each funding agency has certain criteria and guidelines. Review the guidelines first and make sure the proposal you are writing meets the requirements of the grant.
