Most businesses, no matter what the size could benefit tremendously from receiving grant monies. However, there are many steps involved in obtaining a grant, and it can be a tedious and complex process. Granted Consulting of Vancouver can assist all types of businesses with obtaining grants in a cost-effective method. The company serves a wide swath of area within Western Canada.
Millions of dollars in Canadian business grants and tax credits are left unclaimed each year.
The Government of Canada provides a website where business owners, even start up companies can learn what is available in grants and loans for financing and development of any type of business. In addition, there is a wealth of knowledge available on financial management provided on the site. Businesses however seldom have the time or the training necessary to successfully be approved for a grant. It is a time-consuming process that takes vast knowledge, even with the website that the Canadian government provides. Each grant is different and knowing which grant to apply for, and then successfully following all processes usually ends with an application being denied when businesses try to do this themselves.
Most businesses are leery of using a grant consulting firm as they do believe it will cost a fortune.
This is not necessarily true. Although grant consulting firms vary significantly in pricing models, depending on time and type of grant, there are firms like Granted Consulting that will work with clients and offer packages that will alleviate the overall cost of grant applications. Not to mention alleviate the stress and time that is spent on searching and applying for numerous grants over and over only to experience rejection each time. Seeking a grant takes special skills and qualifications and all successful grants are generally awarded when using a firm that is educated on the grant writing process. There are many courses and certifications that successful firms hold. Continuing on the grant process is a must for success. Professional development of all grant writers is an ongoing necessity.
The process of obtaining grants does include specific knowledge of each grant sought.
Each grant like each business is different. The complexity of the grant, as well as the requirements must be studied and researched. There is also almost always a period of post-grant requirements. Post-grant requirements simply involve following up with the funding agency and making sure all documentation is still intact. It also involves checking the status of the grant in a timely manner to ensure no portion of the initial process has been tied up or that the grant has been put “on hold” for an unknown reason. The post-grant follow-up can be as important as the initial application process.
While many businesses try to achieve a grant award many fail or fall through the cracks.
Businesses always can use funding for training, staffing, or purchases. Grants are available in Canada for many types of businesses. However, hiring a good grant consulting firm like Granted Consulting, that is cost effective can not only bring in money through a grant, but save time energy and money while seeking one. Granted Consulting also can assist in this challenging time now with funding and grant issues due to the Pandemic. The firm cares and is committed to clients.
