E.B. Howard Consulting was founded in 2013 with the idea that proposal preparation and independent/external evaluation services can be useful, effective, efficient, and most importantly affordable. From the start, we have set out to provide high-quality, affordable services by offering various pricing and service options.
Organizations that choose to work with us are involved every step of the way. From the initial crafting of a funding menu, through the proposal preparation process, and during the evaluation process; it truly is a collaborative hands-on approach. These organizations also have a common goal to develop, fund, and implement innovative STEM-based solutions to various social, cultural, or environmental issues.
While we can not guarantee that every opportunity we identify will fund a client, or that every proposal we write will be funded, or that your evaluation report will indicate that your program’s goals & objectives will be achieved, we CAN guarantee a tailored approach that is grounded in latest in best-practices, appropriate methodology, and a professional experience.

Gina Taranto - Director of Philanthropy at Space Foundation
We had a positive experience working with Christine and her team at E.B. Howard. The process of simultaneously preparing two, large federal grant proposals for us was very organized, efficiently handled, and conducted professionally but also enjoyable. While we do not yet know the outcome of whether they will be funded, I know we put forward stronger and more compelling proposals because of E.B. Howard. We look forward to using them again on future projects!Read More

“Herding cats… a developed skill and Christine is proficient. Our technical content is arcane. Editing, polishing, and packaging was handled expertly.

Her experience and understanding of what we needed to include in each section proved invaluable. She was 100% invested in our project, providing specific feedback and suggestions to strengthen content. She caught discrepancies in the grant's directions and made sure our application matched what the corrected requirements specified. She was always available to answer a quick question and worked late with me on the nights before the deadline. I know without a doubt we would not have submitted such a strong application without her!"
Kalyan Gupta, Knexus Research Corp regarding two (2) different proposals
"Appreciated Christine's contributions and experience as a proposal manager, her timely response and adherence to a rather tight schedule we were in."
Brian Robinson, CEO at Cardio Legend
"Many people don't understand the complex nature of developing a federal proposal; specifically a proposal for NIH. Developing a federal proposal is not something you should just hand off to a grant consultant and expect a finished product at the end of the day. Nor is it something that I recommend you try to accomplish on your own. These type of proposals require a collaborative effort between the organization submitting the proposal (yourself) and your development consultant. E. B. Howard Consulting, specifically Christine, provides and supports the collaborative effort that it takes to submit a highly competitive proposal. Christine understands the complexity of the NIH proposal development process. Christine walked us through the initial development of our research strategy by making sure that we were answering all of the proposal requirements and strengthening language we used surrounding our research methodology. She also made sure that all of our paperwork and forms were filled out correctly. She even provided hands-on support navigating the proposal portal. Anytime we had a question; she was available to answer it. She has a great personality and is easy to work with. I would definitely recommend her to a friend or colleague."
Blake Wood - COO of Calm Down Now - Venice, Florida
"Couldn't be happier! Very pleased with Christine's overall competency and knowledge regarding grants. She is extremely conscientious and thorough, even with tight deadlines. I would certainly hire her again!"
Director of Development - Epiphany Learning - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin
"Very accommodating to a tight timeline. I couldn't have made the grant deadline without her help!"
Sharath Mekala, President at Village Defense
"I had the pleasure of working with Christine on a project that involved writing a proposal to a city. Finding her was extremely timely, and I was happy to have a great resource that was there for my company and me. I was impressed by Christine's work ethic, her performance, and her understanding of the subject matter. She has a ton of experience that I quickly learned in our first 1-hour project session. I believe that she cares about what she does, and who she works with because it is reflected in the product. I highly recommend Christine for your next project. I look forward to working with her again."
Madison Maxey, owner and founder of The Crated
"I love working with Christine! She's so reliable, quick, and knows her craft. I will certainly hire her again and again...Great experience working with Christine!"
Sam Yusuf, CEO at EarthLyfe, Inc.
"Embarking on my new business and applying for a large grant to get it to the next level, my partners and I had the challenge of putting a detailed and professional business plan together. After conversing with one of the O-Desk customer reps, Christine Howard came highly recommended and Christine most certainly came to our rescue. After hours of conversations and document transfers, Christine’s thoroughness wonderfully benefitted us with the ability to coherently convey our aims in a professional manner to present to a large board of professionals with pride and confidence. I promote her to all of my friends and colleagues looking for a professional that will take the time to listen intently as well as counsel wisely to better the foundations of your business. I very much look forward to using Christine’s services again on my next venture. I wouldn’t want to start with anyone else!"

Alan Lane - regarding Proposal Development
"Christine was very helpful. She supplied excellent material for my submission and communicated with me over all items. Unfortunately, I was forced to give Christine a very tight timetable; she was able to work through that and delivered everything that I had hoped for. My grant submission was accepted and was successful. I would be happy to work with Christine again and will contact her when our next application is due."
