What is the "Net Grant?"

Net Grant = Total Grant Amount MINUS the Time and Resources expended to seek and implement the grant.

This tool will help grantmakers and grantseekers better understand the cost to their organization - and to the sector as whole - of making and seeking grants.

For Grantseekers
