Needs Assessment for Your Grant Proposals

Written by Adel Salah

Needs assessment

Needs assessment is considered the first and most important step in project proposal writing and in preparing the donor to understand the problem. So this part must be written carefully and clearly.

In order to assess needs, we have to take into consideration that need is a problem that the community suffers from, specifically, targeted groups that are children ( boys and girls), young men and women, men and women or it may be a specific group of the population like people with special needs or the poorest groups only. To make it clear, we have to analyze problems in the targeted community.

Stages of the needs assessment process

  1. Selecting The Targeted Area.

  2. Identifying The Main Problem.

  3. Data Collection.

  4. Analyzing The Problem.
