The Grant Writing Assistance Program provides members with help developing grant applications for funding. Grant programs that are eligible for assistance from WRCOG are summarized in the Program Guidelines. Interested members must review the guidelines and submit an interest form to be considered for assistance. Revisions to the Guidelines were made in April 2022.
The Active Transportation Program has become a very competitive grant program so WRCOG is utilizing a preliminary scoring criterion specifically for requests of assistance on ATP grant applications. WRCOG will utilize the preliminary score to commence a discussion with the requesting member agency. As part of this preliminary scoring criterion, requesting agencies will need to provide certain data. WRCOG is proposing to utilize these data points because they are categories which have been standardized as part of the ATP scoring criterion. Specifically for requests on ATP grant applications, member agencies must submit a brief application.
