Do I Include Myself in a Grant Proposal So I Get Paid for Writing It?

How do I write myself into a grant so that I get paid for writing the grant proposal?

The costs of planning and writing a grant proposal are the responsibility of the applicant organization. It is extremely rare for a funder to allow a grant to pay for work that has been done before a grant award is made. In those very rare cases when a funder will allow pre-award costs to be covered by a grant, that will be addressed specifically in the application instructions. In general, you cannot include grant proposal writing in the budget.
