Use the K.I.S.S. Principle and Leave the Acronyms Out of your Proposal
Okay, so I have a background in Emergency Management, so when I review a grant from ARC who is partnering with the local EOC to do a CPR class while they eat MREs, I get it.
However, my colleagues who share in the grant review might not have a clue what those acronyms mean!
Often, grant writers are limited in the words and/or characters we can use to tell the story.
In that case, spell the phrase out first and put the acronym in parenthesis….then you can use that
acronym throughout your grant application.
