One of the best decision I made was to take help from Jonathan for my editing work. He is someone who never fails in providing constructive feedback at all time and I had an amazing time working with me. I knew that I have to find someone to help me with my writing and my work and Jonathan helped me sail through the project.

E.B. Howard Consulting is worth every penny. They were able to locate funding for my start-up and helped with crafting a high-quality grant proposal that was funded. If you want professionals and you want to get funded... this is the consulting firm you need to be working with. Don't waste time with anyone else.

About

About

My work stands out because I am very particular about diction and syntax, and I always keep the author's voice in mind. I maintain constant communication through the process, to make sure my client is satisfied.

About

I have a keen eye for detail, a love of the English language and a near OCD compulsion for perfect text. In fact, I am the sort of person who circles typos in the local newspaper just because I cannot do it. I have an extensive proofreading and editorial experience under my belt, including serving as an editor in chief for All Things Career's host of sites (Career Attraction, Career Meh, Every Veteran Hired and Introvert Whisperer) and as an assistant editor for Brazen Life. I also have 12 years' experience proofreading legal pleadings and correspondences as a paralegal for a corporate law firm, where attention to detail was critical as every misplaced comma could change the meaning of a sentence that could one day be admissible in court. I was the "last stop" for many documents. I also live and breathe blogging. I've been featured on many "top bloggers" lists and guest posted on A-list blogs like The Middle Finger Project and Budgets Are Sexy. I contribute regularly to blogs on everything, from lifestyle design to personal finance. I'm also passionate about helping others improve their blogs and find their voices and offer blog consulting services and blog mentoring. I have the following specialties: * Quirky and engaging writing style that can be tailored to fit the needs of each project (Professional and brazen sides can be mixed as needed) * Focus on the topics of lifestyle design, personal finance, careers, productivity, and being the most tail-kicking version of yourself possible (Lovingly delivered motivation and smackdowns as needed) * English nerd with an OCD obsession for perfect punctuation, flow, and grammar * Experience in brand positioning and marketing * Enthusiasm like you wouldn't believe * Snark, wit and sass (in appropriate doses)

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you hire a good grant writer?

Grants are available to nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses that qualify for government grants, and individuals who qualify for foundation or government grants. Hiring a good grant writer can help you gain funding in your chosen field. According to the American Grant Writers’ Association, grant writers can help you research potential grant opportunities; write grant proposals, create budgets, and build budget narratives; review written materials before you submit; prepare a business plan; analyze your organization for grant competitive qualities; prepare research grants; help with 501(c)(3) applications for nonprofits; and more. Investing in the right grant writer could result in a financial win for your organization. Generally no licenses or certificates are required to be a good grant writer, but you may want to find a grant writer who has been certified (not just received a certificate of completion) by a reputable organization such as the Grant Professionals Certification Institute. Qualities to look for in a good grant writer include:

  • Proven success writing winning grants, especially in your target area.
  • Strong writing skills.
  • Strong math skills and demonstrated proficiency with budgeting.
  • Careful attention to detail — brilliant grant proposals may be rejected just for formatting errors, so you want someone who follows instructions explicitly.
  • Expertise in your target area.
  • Punctuality and good communication skills.

How much does a grant writer cost?

Hiring a grant writer can give you a competitive edge when applying for financial grants for your business or nonprofit organization, or as an individual. The cost to hire a grant writer can vary depending on their academic background, areas of expertise, previous grant writing success and years of experience. According to the Grant Professionals Association, grant writers should be paid hourly or by flat fee. It is unethical for a grant writer to accept a commission or percentage compensation of grant monies received. They can, however, be awarded bonuses in line with the hiring company’s prevailing practices. Here are some examples of average grant writing fees:

  • Hourly rate for grant writers with less experience or fewer grants awarded: $25-$35 per hour.
  • Hourly rate for grant writers with some degree of success: $35-$75 per hour.
  • Hourly rate for grant writers with proven success winning large grants: $75-$150 or more per hour.
  • For a smaller grant, the writer may charge a flat fee of $200-$500 for preparation and submission.  

Pricing may also vary based on the complexity of the grant application. A federal grant that requires pages of research, budgets and a business plan may take more than 30 hours to prepare. For a high-level grant writer who charges $100 per hour, this means $3,000 or more in grant writing fees.

Most grant writers will provide you with a total cost estimate before agreeing to the work. You may be required to pay a deposit up front, or the grant writer may work from a retainer. Often, seasoned grant writers pay for themselves in the long run by writing successful grants.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
