Full Service Grant Management
In 2016, only 4.9% of small to medium-sized enterprises in Canada utilized government grants and tax credits. Why? Ironically, the businesses that benefit the most from government funding usually don’t have the time and resources to be constantly researching and applying for grants, which in itself is quite the intimidating task. Let Granted manage this process for you.
We charge a nominal annual consulting fee accompanied by a success-based fee to secure grants for small and medium-sized Canadian businesses with a 93% success rate. We’ve applied for 10,000+ grants for over 850 businesses in 26+ different industries.
Here’s how Granted manages the grant process from start to finish:
Many smaller businesses don’t apply for grants because it’s difficult to have someone dedicated to staying on top of grant opportunities and sorting through the overwhelming amount of info that’s scattered throughout pages and pages of government jargon. Granted takes care of this by developing an annual grant strategy customized to your business. We start with a strategy for the year to understand how we can best leverage grants to meet your business goals. We will also schedule quarterly check-ins with you so you can get the most out of government grants, especially if your business has changing needs throughout the year.
With funding programs constantly coming, going and changing throughout the year, you need someone with their finger on the pulse to keep track of not only the best grant programs for your business but also if there’s been any modifications to the programs you’re interested in. With Granted, we’ll send you weekly mailers about new grants or changes to grants that your business qualifies for. When you see a grant that you’re interested in, you can schedule a call with one of our consultants to discuss the funding program in more detail. We also send out monthly newsletters keeping you up to date about grant information, updates, events, and more.
Over our 10+ years of experience helping businesses with grants, we’ve found that one of the most common stumbling blocks faced by smaller organizations is dedicating the time to research what grants are out there. Our research team is constantly looking for new or renewed funding opportunities, meaning you don’t have to waste valuable time figuring out what grants are available for your organization. Throughout the year we’ll send you updates on grants that are applicable specifically to your business, so you can rest easy knowing you’re informed about the latest and greatest funding opportunities.
Writing a high-quality grant application takes a lot of time and effort. Not only does it involve reading through and comprehending a profusion of government documentation, but you also have to know the specifics of what grantors are looking for in order to insure you have the best chance to obtain funding. Granted has over a decade of experience writing grant applications for a large variety of industries, so we know what it takes to build the best possible pitch. We manage the whole application process and work with you every step of the way from start to finish.
A significant part of the grant process is making sure you have a solid proposal for the grant you’re applying for. Authorities in charge of funding for grants require personalized proposals that answer all of your needs and questions. If you’re pitching to a big customer, you need to understand how to develop a proposal that blows your competition away. Granted is here to help. We pride ourselves on expressing key elements of what your audience is looking for and help you structure your proposal with the right verbiage concisely and efficiently.
Submitting final reconciliation paperwork is an extremely important aspect of the grant process, which is often underestimated. Even if you do get approved for funding, missing deadlines or submitting the wrong documents could mean losing money for your business. If your company budgeted for grant money to come in but you don’t actually end up getting the funds, this means bad cash flow. Granted’s consultants work with you on final reporting requirements with a success-based fee in mind, so you can have peace of mind that your funding will be secured.
