Grant Writing Services
Transformative Research and Evaluation provides support to new and established nonprofit organizations. Services range from assisting with the preparation and submission of the IRS’s 501(c)3 application, identifying funding sources, conducting research to support program models, recommending evaluation instruments, and writing evidenced based grant proposals. Additionally, TRE Consulting will analyze Request for Proposal (RFP), Request for Applications (RFA), or Notices of Funding Availability (NOFA) and craft responses to these requests. Our grant writing staff have served as primary authors of funded grants in excess of $1.5 million.

TRE played an instrumental role in the inception and development of Better Outcomes for Our Kids, Inc. We needed research and evidence to educate parents on school options and choice. TRE provided the research, talking points, and informational material needed for us to raise awareness and engage parents, community members, politicians, educators, and other key stakeholders.

Working with TRE Consulting has catapulted our organization in identifying and capitalizing on efficacious practices that empower vulnerable children to be successful. Their tenacious attention to detail and subject matter expertise have guided the development and implementation of our comprehensive community-wide trauma informed and violence prevention interventions. They are a valuable asset to the children and families we serve!
TRE helped me work through some personal issues that were preventing me from being the best person that I can be. Now, I have a job and a safe place for me and my daughter to stay. I am also working to enroll in school.
I needed a family observation for a custody dispute that was pending out of state. TRE provided my family a social worker who was responsive to my family schedule and availability. This was important considering my daughter was only in my custody for short periods because she lives out of state. TRE’s responsiveness and professionalism helped me to fulfil a vital court obligation in a timely manner.
We were recently awarded a service-learning grant that was authored by TRE. Having their assistance ultimately allowed us to work with a well deserving community of youth in Atlanta that would have otherwise continued to not have access to vital resources and opportunities. For that we are forever grateful and will continue to work with TRE in the future.
TRE designed and assisted with implementation of a one-year youth development model that we use to provide after school programming at high schools. With the support of TRE, our afterschool program has created youth-led projects that received national attention and the youth we served have gained invaluable skills. The services TRE provided exceeded our expectations. In addition to receiving programmatic direction, TRE provided us with research, statistical analysis, and informational documents needed for us to scale up our program.
