About Us

The Grant Administration Office is responsible for two major grant-related functions:

  1. Writing grant applications to secure federal, state, local and foundation funding;
  2. Tracking grant activities to ensure fiscal and programmatic compliance

With a team of six employees, including a Director, Compliance Officer, Grant Coordinator, two Grant Development Specialists and an Administrative Assistant, the office identifies funding sources, prepares grant proposals and provides compliance services to meet the programmatic and fiscal terms and conditions of grant awards.

Upon grant award notification, the Grant Administration Office ensures that grant-funded projects remain in compliance through a series of checks and balances, such as conducting award orientations, tracking grant expenditures and performing compliance and monitoring reviews.

The Office currently manages $62 million in grant funds from various foundation, state and federal funding agencies that impact wide-ranging efforts including Citywide and regional infrastructure maintenance and improvements, economic development, environmental stewardship, public safety and recreation.
