Local Grant applications are now only processed through an online system. The system is set up so that the applicant must complete the Grant and Gift Application Checklist form online and upload the grant narrative, budget, and budget narrative to the application.
Applicants must contact the Accounting Manager to go over their budget prior to submitting the application online. Once the application is submitted, the grant approvers (department heads in the district) will review it for completeness and accuracy.
All grant requests must be received three weeks prior to the grant deadline. Once final district approval has been obtained (from the Director of Finance), the applicant will be notified via email at which time the grant application may then be submitted to the Grantor by the applicant.
All grant checks are to be made payable and sent to:
