The program budget is a high-stakes, make-it-or-break-it section of your grant proposal. A thorough, logical budget is sure to increase your odds of winning a grant, while an incomplete or confusing budget is just as likely to sink your chances. Even if numbers aren’t your strong suit, the budget must be sound.
