Applying for a government or organisation grant can be a long process and you're likely to be in a long queue with other hopeful applicants.
The best thing you can do is make sure that your paperwork is complete, as a mistake or lack of information could mean that the process is made even longer.
A business plan can be used for a grant application so long as the specific requirements laid out by the grant manager are met. This means that your business plan becomes more of a bespoke document.
Your grant application needs to explain your purpose and reason for the grant early on.
You should make sure to outline your timeline/milestones as all grant application managers/grant agencies will want to know when to expect delivery of promises you've set out in your grant application.
The amount of money required needs to be specially written - you need to make sure that you do not ask for too much or too little as both could mean your application is rejected.
Finally, make sure that you outline how you intend to keep going after the grant money expires as grants are often (not always) given for organisations that can be stable without them and just need a driving push.
