The waiting process once a grant application has been submitted can be grueling. However, this time can be used wisely, and can ensure that an organization is prepared once they are notified of whether they were funded. One essential task is to hold a meeting to debrief with the grant writing staff to assess the effectiveness of the process.Imagine you are preparing for a debrief meeting, specifically discussing what you have learned from developing this grant for the Resource Center to start an after-school program.Come up with 2–3 major takeaways from this process to share with your team. This may be something you learned about the process, a resource or experience you found especially valuable, a challenge you faced, or something that really surprised you.For the discussion, share your takeaways and be sure to be specific and provide an explanation for each. Be sure to respond to at least one of your classmates’ posts.
