Proposal Development

& Technical Reviews


Any costs associated with the development or technical review of grant proposals are considered unallowable costs for federal TRiO programs. Funds to pay for any proposal development costs and fees must come from non-Project funds such as institutional or agency resources.


NEC assists agencies, colleges, universities, and state governments in the development and technical review of federal and state-funded grant proposals with the following services:


  • Development of all narrative sections and Competitive Preference Priorities for clients

  • Technical reviews and detailed editing and proofreading of proposal narratives developed by client

    • Educational Opportunity Centers (EOC)

    • McNair​

    • Student Support Services (SSS)

    • Talent Search (TS)

Additionally, we conduct proposal writing workshops that provide the following instruction and practical skills necessary for developing successful proposals: 


  • Methods to collect and assess the required data to demonstrate a “Need” for funding;

  • Development of an appropriate budget and personnel structure that adequately corresponds with an effective yet realistic Plan of Operation;

  • Setting performance objectives that are ambitious yet attainable; and

  • Creation of a comprehensive yet relevant Evaluation Plan.
