The Grants Management Division is an available resource to all County departments. Our primary goal is to provide full lifecycle grant management services to departments and elected offices. We are tasked to research grant opportunities, provide technical assistance in grant writing, and administratively manage all federal, and most state, grants awarded to the County. We are here to assist departments in increasing grant revenue. As departments share programmatic and capital needs the Grants Management Division works to locate appropriate grant opportunities and facilitates assistance throughout the grant application process.
