Receiving funding from a grant or other source  of funds is a great accomplishment. Once the funding is received, the  human services organization must be able to manage the funds  effectively. The organization must also develop a plan to sustain the  program after the funding period ends or the potential for change from  the funded program may be limited.

For this  Discussion, review the budget provided in the grant proposal that you  discussed in Discussion 1 of this Week. Consider how you would  prioritize budgetary needs and fundraise to continue covering costs of  this program after the grant period has ended.

By Day 4

Post a brief description of the  budget presented in the grant proposal you selected. Describe how you  might alter the budget after the grant ended or which budget items you  would prioritize as you sought additional funding to continue the  program. Explain why you would make these changes or prioritize specific  budget items. Finally, explain how you would fundraise to meet the  budget priorities.

Support your post with specific references to the resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references.
