Write On Grants

2813 S 32nd Ave, Omaha, NE 68105


Be careful when voicing your dreams—they may come true! Becky Latka’s Write On Grants business started as a “daydream spoken aloud” while hiking in Neale Woods. “I was hiking with the Nebraska Adventure Group, and talk turned to what we’d do when we retired and I said I’d like to write grants and edit from home.” After the hike, one of the hikers, a professor and researcher at UNMC, said he needed a grant writer. While working part-time for UNMC, Becky attended several grant-writing workshops where she learned about SBIR/STTR federal grant opportunities. It was not long before Becky was able to start her own company and her dream became a reality. Becky not only writes grants, but she also provides assistance writing resumes, press releases, white papers, and technical papers, and creative writing, as well as editing. Working in her home office, with her cats and her dog, Becky minimizes her environmental footprint by using existing space to conduct her business. “My writing needs are minimal—a desk and a computer.”
