Program Description

  Grants Management

The Office of Grants Management leads countywide grants strategy and planning by developing countywide policies and procedures to implement best practices regarding grants management; maximize the County's use of Federal, State, and non-governmental grant opportunities; maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of grants awarded by the County; ensure public transparency and ethical practice in grants management; and ensure that grants management in the County is consistent with the County's racial equity and social justice goals. The Office of Grants Management's five core functions in County government are to integrate Racial Equity and Social Justice considerations into all aspects of County grants management, assist departments with winning and complying with outside grant awards, organize equitable and inclusive competitive grant programs in partnership with departments, issue County awards as grant agreements, and report County grants management activities to the Executive, County Council, and public.

The Office also maintains a grants database that includes current information regarding each grant opportunity offered by the County as well as each grant received or awarded by the County. The Director is responsible for submitting quarterly reports on the activities of the Office to the Executive and the Council. These include an overview of the grants process and awards; data regarding grants received or awarded by the County; public outreach activities and outcomes; progress in racial equity and social justice goals; and any recommendations to improve policies and procedures regarding grants management in the County.
