The sixth edition of this essential guide was created for both novice grantseekers who need instruction on how to begin the process, and seasoned grantseekers who want to learn new techniques to save time and increase success. Revisions and additions reflect the enormous changes and challenges that have occurred in the grants marketplace since the fourth edition was published in 1999. The exhibits and tables have been updated to reflect advances in technology and computer usage.
