Grants for community and regional development generally come from the Federal, State and Local Government. In some cases they come from philanthropic organisations like trusts and foundations.
Typically, grant programs are developed to address a need, priority or issue. Our goal is to make sure that our region and communities do not miss out on opportunties for funding.
RDA Orana has made it easier for organisations to access available funding opportunities.
Every month we release a grants newsletter highlighting available grants, funding opportunities and other sources of funding that are available for the business and the community in our region. By bringing the information together, businesses and organisations can keep up with any new opportunities that come about and that come about and that may fit their projects and operational needs.
Our aim is to ensure that our region has access to and can take advantage of all possible opportunties for economic growth. If you are not sure whether your business qualifies for funding, we can help you with that. We can help review the eligibility of the project based on the funding guidelines and match it it with the best available funding stream. We walk busineses through the process to ensure that their application is competitive.

Grant funding is generally very competitive.
This means that the higher the quality of applications, the greater the chances for success. Grant writing is a laborious process that requires good writing skills, attention to details, sales skills, and the ability to manage different contributors.
With some grants, the technical and government terms can be challenging at times. If you do not have someone with these abilities, your organisation will benefit from seeking someone with grant writing skills and experience.
We will review your grant application for free.
We also offer grant writing for a small fee. Our qualified and experienced grant writers can take the headache off you so that you do not have to worry about it. We offer grant writing services ranging from project planning to economic analysis, ensuring quality grant submissions. We work with you to ensure that we come up with the best possible project proposal that will make their application competitive.
Developing a proper project plan is crucial to any project. We work with the businesses to develop a comprehensive project plan and build a strong business case to support the project. We will walk you through your project and help come up with a proper plan that will fit into your business needs as well as the grant requirements.
The benefits of any good investment needs to outweigh the costs. For most projects and larger grant applications, it is often beneficial and sometimes mandatory to perform an economic model to determine if the investment is viable. We can help your business perform a cost-benefit analysis to appraise the desirability of the project.
We intend to support our community in any way we can to ensure that they do not miss out on any opportunities that can help them grow. Having proper supporting evidence goes a long way to evaluating a project proposal above the competition. RDA Orana provides both economic and community data accessible on our facts and figures.
We can also provide letters of support for projects that align with our priorities and that will benefit the community and the region.
