We have found that nothing compares to the face-to-face meeting with you at the program site to help us understand the impact of your work. We meet potential grantees to listen and talk with you and allows you to show us what is happening in your program or facility. We are interested in meeting the principal staff members and seeing your program in action. It gives a complete picture of the program(s) that may be funded and helps to develop a rapport that is beneficial in the grant process. A site visit often determines whether or not a grant will be awarded.
