  • Secure additional funding for educational programs within the district.
  • Provide greater coordination of grant activities within the district for a focused, efficient and professional approach to all grant-seeking endeavors.
  • Increase the district’s capacity for funding by building collaborative relationships and partnerships among community-based organizations.
  • Support innovative classroom activities that are funded through competitive grant initiatives. 


  • Provide district-wide grant development training and technical assistance.
  • Advise educators in preparing proposals and in the proposal writing process.
  • Conduct grant source searches for educators.
