Partnership and Grant Services
The AIM Institute is interested in forging partnerships with businesses, nonprofits and educational institutions throughout the region to promote AIM’s mission to support community growth related to information technology. Toward that end, AIM works with its partners to find and procure federal funds for programs that benefit its partners and are consistent with AIM’s mission.
Grant Proposal Development
The AIM Institute works with partners in person, over the phone, and via the Internet to develop successful grant proposals. The first step is to understand both the Request for Proposal (RFP) and the goal(s) for the grant.
The grant writing service includes: assessing the needs of the partner and the target population, developing program goals and objectives based on the RFP, and organizing the production of the proposal. The AIM Team composes the grant content, prepares documents for submission, works with the partner to ensure accuracy of organizational content, submits the document to the funding agency through hard copy or e-submission (as appropriate), and provides follow-up.
Cost of Services
The AIM Institute writes grants for community and educational partners that further the AIM mission and help with the economic development of the region by bringing in funds. AIM will be a partner on these grants by providing evaluation and IT services to the program for a percentage of the funding.
