Generally, grants that propose district-wide initiatives or multiple partners within the district or community are a collaborative effort between the grants division and those schools, programs or community agencies impacted by the initiative. Application development, submission and fiscal management occurs through the central office and/or the appropriate partners.
Grants for school-specific projects are smaller grant awards made to financially supplement in-school, after-school or school-level projects. Responsibility for the application development and submission lies with a school representative, often a teacher or principal. Fiscal management, project implementation and grant reports are the responsibility of the principal.
