A problem/needs statement is often a required part of a grant proposal. A human service organization needs to demonstrate that it is serving an important, documented need in the community.
This week, you will develop a needs/problem statement for the same organization that you discussed in your Assignments for Units 2 and 3. My organization is Art Feeds (artfeeds.org).
You may use the Unit 6 Assignment Template to organize your work. Do not submit your answers directly on the template, as the Assignment needs to be in essay format. The template is a guide for you to use to ensure that you include all of the required components of the Assignment. The different components of the template should appear as headings and subheadings in APA style in your paper. Please be sure to write in complete sentences and to utilize the strategies for effective grant writing. You need to use a total of five references in your Assignment, with at least two of them being peer-reviewed journal articles. Examples of other references that you can use, in addition to the two required peer-reviewed journal articles, are reputable websites and books. The references need to appear as in-text citations in your paper, and in the references page at the end. They need to be cited using APA style.
