I had a very important sales proposal to prepare, and was given only a 1-day notice. The forms were perfect, and the presentation went great. We were told it was the best she had ever seen. Thanks for a great product, and for providing it in a pinch."

Components of a Standard of Living Improvement Proposal

There is no one-size-fits-all template for a standard of living improvement proposal. Proposal Kit templates can be customized as needed to fit any situation using the extensive chapter template library. Here are some key chapters typically included in this type of template. Use this template as your starting point and customize it as needed using the software included with each Proposal Pack or the Professional bundle.

Cover Letter

The Cover Letter serves as an introduction to the proposal, providing a brief overview of the document's purpose and the positive impact it aims to achieve. For a Standard of Living Improvement Proposal, this letter should express the urgency of addressing the needs of the poor and homeless and invite the recipient to consider the detailed plans presented.

Executive Summary

The Executive Summary offers a concise snapshot of the entire proposal. It highlights the key points such as the current issues faced by the community, proposed improvements, the funding required, and expected outcomes. Considering the situation of improving the standard of living, it should underscore the comprehensive approach to addressing housing, health, and social services.

Needs Assessment

The Needs Assessment chapter details the current conditions and challenges faced by the target population. For this proposal type, it should include statistics and observations about homelessness, poverty levels, and lack of access to important services in the community.


This chapter outlines the specific improvements proposed to enhance the standard of living. It should cover plans for housing upgrades, healthcare access, community programs, and other relevant initiatives aimed at alleviating poverty and homelessness.

Funding Plan

The Funding Plan explains how the proposed improvements will be financed. It should detail various funding sources, such as government grants, private donations, and fundraising events, specifically tailored to support the community's needs.

Standard of Living

This chapter defines what constitutes an improved standard of living and how the proposed actions will achieve these criteria. It should include benchmarks for success like reduced homelessness rates, increased access to healthcare, and improved community services.


The Shelter chapter focuses on solutions for providing safe and stable housing. This can include building new shelters, renovating existing structures, or providing temporary housing solutions for the homeless population.

Health and Wellness

This section addresses health-related initiatives aimed at improving physical and mental well-being. It should cover plans for medical clinics, mental health services, and wellness programs specifically designed for low-income and homeless individuals.


The Community chapter highlights initiatives to strengthen social bonds and community involvement. This could include community centers, local events, and programs that encourage volunteerism and support networks.

Special Needs

This chapter addresses how the proposal will accommodate individuals with special needs, such as disabilities, mental health issues, or chronic illnesses. It should outline specific services and programs tailored to these vulnerable groups.

Social Services

The Social Services chapter details the support services that will be provided, such as job training, educational programs, and family support services. These are crucial for helping individuals transition out of poverty and homelessness.


This section provides a detailed breakdown of the costs associated with the proposed improvements. It should include expenses for housing, healthcare, social services, and other related initiatives.

Funding Request

The Funding Request chapter clearly states the amount of funding needed to execute the proposal. It should be justified with data and a detailed explanation of how the funds will be allocated to improve the standard of living.

Future Funding

This chapter outlines plans for securing ongoing funding to sustain the improvements. It should include strategies for future grant applications, partnerships, and long-term financial planning.


The Budget chapter presents a detailed financial plan, including estimated costs and expected revenue sources. It should align with the funding plan and clearly show how the funds will be used to achieve the proposal's goals.


The Recommendations chapter offers specific suggestions for moving forward with the proposal. It should provide actionable steps and best practices for implementing the outlined improvements.

Social Responsibility

This chapter discusses the ethical and social obligations of supporting the proposed initiatives. It should highlight the moral imperative of improving the standard of living for the poor and homeless and the broader societal benefits.
