Develop a Community Outreach Program Proposal (Guidance for writing a successful Community Outreach / Education proposalCommunity Outreach by Dermatology Education (CODE)-example) to target the chosen topic. Make sure to consider who the proposal developer is, who is the target audience, the purpose of the proposal. The structure will be following similar guidelines but the content will differ. A proposal to the hospital Board of Directors will differ from a Grant Proposal or from a proposal for the local Government.

The Proposal should not be longer than 10-12 pages plus the title and reference, cover letter.  Make sure to provide supportive evidence where appropriate. Cite and refer it in APA 7th Edition. The section of Budget should offer suggestions for the funding sources but does not need to be developed in details.
