Synopsis: Grant writing and grant seeking are unique technical skills, often times acquired through formal, informal, and hands-on training. In "Get Grant Ready: Volume I--Simple Grant Funding Research", professional grant writer Nikki Kirk draws upon her years of experience and expertise to create a practical, yet comprehensive instruction manual for the specific purpose of assisting grant writers and grant seekers how to find grant funds as well as information for nonprofit organizations, charities, civic groups, public and charter schools, fraternal orders, postsecondary institutions, local governmental entities, as well as public safety and first responders.

"Simple Grant Funding Research" works to eliminate all the stress and worry that comes with locating grants for organizations. With fewer dollars available for professional development for staff education, many organizations are struggling to train their staff on how to effectively locate grants. Many organizations are moving away from consultants to in-house grant writing and research. Staff being asked to conduct these new tasks are literally being asked to perform highly technical skills, often times with little or no support. This is especially the case with public safety, law enforcement, and first responders.

"Simple Grant Funding Research" is a one-stop shop for new grant writers and organizations desiring to learn where and how to find grant funding relative to your organization's mission and purpose. "Simple Grant Funding Research" is a no-fluff effort to assist new and seasoned grant writers as well as grant seekers not only locate grant funding, but also how to interpret what is found in the funding opportunity announcements in order to provide the appropriate information in grant proposals prior to the grant review process.

Competing for grants can only happen if you find the grants. "Simple Grant Funding Research" (which is the first volume of Kirk's Get Grant Ready Series), aims to make finding grants actually happen.

Critique: Simply stated, acquiring a copy of "Simple Grant Funding Research" is a complete course of instruction under one cover and will prove to be more cost-effective than attending a grant writing training, allowing organizations (regardless of size) to learn how to locate grant funds. Thoroughly 'user friendly' in tone, content, organization and presentation, "Simple Grant Funding Research" is unreservedly recommended for personal, professional, NGO, community, college, and university library Grant Writing instructional reference collections.
