In a time of declining state funding for postsecondary education, federal grant funding can assist community colleges in meeting needs such as developing and implementing new instructional programs, improving the services provided to students, and building infrastructure. This study had two purposes: Purpose 1 was to implement the Compression Planning® with storyboarding method in grant proposal development to enable the campus to submit more federal grant proposals for first time funding with no increase in human resources. Purpose 2 was to learn from those previously trained in the method what helped or hindered their success in implementing the method after their training. Through participants' positive reaction to the process and some survey results, the study suggests that using the method can advance community college grant proposal development. Using Compression Planning ® with storyboarding can make the meetings needed to design projects and facilities and to develop proposals for grants to fund them more efficient, thus leaving more time for grant proposal development. The method has the potential to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of planning meetings for a variety of purposes.
