Program Description

  Grants Management

The Office of Grants Management leads countywide grants policy and planning by developing countywide policies and procedures to implement best practices regarding grants management; maximizes the County's use of Federal, State, and non-governmental grant opportunities; maximizes the efficiency and effectiveness of grants awarded by the County; ensures public transparency and ethical practice in grants management; and ensures that grants management in the County is consistent with the County's racial equity and social justice goals. The Office of Grants Management's three core functions in County government are to assist departments with winning and complying with outside grant awards, organizing equitable and inclusive competitive grant programs, and issuing County awards as grant agreements.

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 submits quarterly reports on the activities of the Office to the County Executive and the County Council that 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.

The Office of Grants Management will develop and oversee a grant funding mechanism for departments to use for implementing programs and initiatives; instead of the reimbursable non-competitive contracts the County traditionally calls grants. The Office is also responsible for developing, managing, advertising, and integrating racial equity and social justice considerations into the application and awarding processes for grant programs offered by Montgomery County Government, while training departments in grants management and outcomes focused grants oversight best practices.
