About Our Team

At Access Granted Writing, we have successfully researched, developed and written award-winning proposals for under-represented and under-funded organizations and programs in the Chicago area, bringing in over $500,000 annually. We are expanding our services to agencies nationwide in 2021, with a continued focus on opening doors of funding for communities of color by providing access to resources previously out of their reach.

Access Granted Writing specializes in program design, inter-agency research, and writing proposals for organizations and individuals who have previously not had a place at the funding table. From restaurants who hire formerly-incarcerated individuals to reduce recidivism rates, to residential teen mother programs and local small businesses, we have designed programs, written award-winning grant proposals, and offered a breadth of business consulting services to increase funding and efficacy of outreach. We look forward to serving you!
