I need all collaborators to write what you can contribute to the success of this application. I have started 6 areas of impact in Expected Results below. You can add more or simply add more words under each area that pertains to you and your skills. Each major heading will be a grant requirement that follows the outline of the PDF RFP.

Please include:

How much money would you need to provide these services. Perhaps it is easier to say how many hours per week you will devote to the project and your price per week. If you must host meetings, include cost per week for travel, meeting or training sessions, etc.
