Governments and donor organizations are interested in supporting family planning program initiatives that create new services or expand existing services to reach underserved populations. This issue of "The Family Planning Manager" presents a framework for developing a proposal for a new program initiative and guidelines for converting this into a funding request. The proposal should clearly detail the existing problem or need addressed, the proposed solution, the goals and specific measurable objectives, a general activity plan (including specification of who will be responsible for each activity and a time frame), a plan for monitoring progress and evaluating results, a reporting schedule, and a projected budget for both the first year and the life of the project. Project costs should include salaries and wages, benefits, fees, travel and associated expenses, supplies and equipment, purchased services, education and training, general administration, and other costs. To turn the plan into a proposal for funding, sections should be added on the qualifications of the organization and of key personnel, factors that will facilitate program sustainability, and a brief summary of the project. Donors favor proposals that clearly define the problem, have reasonable objectives, show evidence of program capacity, and are linked to other organizations' efforts to solve the problem.
