Once an applicant has been selected to receive LA n Sync’s support, we assign a grant manager to be the liaison for the lead applicant during the grant application process.
The grant manager works closely with the grant applicant to determine the type and scope of assistance needed to increase the viability and competitiveness of the funding application.
Grant Writing Support
LA n Sync recognizes that the success of a funding application can rest on the applicant’s effectiveness in creating a powerful narrative. Without this, an applicant can be disadvantaged, no matter how good their programs and services.
To address this need, and the need for other kinds of support in the grant writing process, we have curated a vetted list of highly skilled grant development professionals who specialize in designing, formulating, preparing, and submitting major funding applications. LA n Sync works with its grantees to pair them with the most effective consultant(s) for their project.
Letters Of Support
LA n Sync validates the applications it works on by providing a letter of support. This letter is numbered for authenticity, and bears the LA n Sync seal. It represents not only the endorsement of LA n Sync, but also that of its full list of cross-sector key partners as co-signatories.
We also work with applicants to seek specialized endorsements from additional sources. For instance, when LA n Sync supported the Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition in applying for a Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing grant, we secured letters from key business organizations throughout the state.
