“I had the pleasure of working with Natasha Goldman and her team at WISSEN, Inc. on two major federal grant applications in 2022, and I was thoroughly impressed with their skills and expertise. From the very beginning, they worked tirelessly help our agency craft proposals that effectively communicated our requests for funding.

Natasha was highly organized and detail-oriented, ensuring that all aspects of the grant Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) were thoroughly researched and addressed in the final application. Her writing, and that of her team, was clear, concise, and persuasive, effectively making the case for why our organization deserved funding. Additionally, her project management skills were outstanding. Both applications required contributions from multiple individuals from several agencies, as well as letter of commitments from many different partners. She meticulously prepared a detailed work plan and calendar, and ensured that everyone stayed on track.

Thanks to WISSEN’s hard work and dedication, we were awarded both of the grants we applied for, $23M from the U.S. Department of Commerce and $3M from the U.S. Department of Labor. I would highly recommend Natasha Goldman and her team to anyone seeking a talented and reliable grant professional who can deliver results.”
