Grantable is the word that we have chosen to encompass all the components that are involved with finding grants, applying to grants, and hand-tailoring the grant process for your clients. Anyone can be grantable, it’s merely a matter of knowing the grant world and how they fit into it. It’s totally doable, you just have to see how. That’s where we come in.
Why is it Doable?

The last thing to fall into place is the act of them applying. The great news about grants is that there is a significant chance for there to be a grant that fits their exact criteria. RFP Match comes into the picture by making it that much easier for your clients to find grants based on their eligibility and needs.

It Can Happen for Anyone!
