At KAI, we understand that every step of the grant process is vital – from the application process to ensuring that grant funds are spent effectively once a grant is awarded. We maintain a database of seasoned grant reviewers who provide efficient, high-quality support and oversight. Our trainers work with clients on funding opportunities, applications, and post-award activities to meet the requirements of each funding agency.
We work with teams to find areas that need improvement and to develop steps that strengthen management, lead to company growth, and enhance capabilities. Our professional facilitators foster participation, ownership, and synergy in collaborative settings. We provide services that help you grow.
In support of grantors and grantees, throughout the grant life cycle we offer training and technical assistance, including help with the application processes, project planning, and reporting requirements. We work with qualified reviewers across the country to analyze grant applications, assessing their potential for success. We develop flexible in-person and online review panel processes that result in efficiency and overall cost savings.
