Purpose of Grant
The agency endorses and supports the pursuit of grant monies through appropriate foundations and government funding sources in all areas, which enhance the services provided by the agency. Grants may be sought from foundations, government units, corporations, and other grant-making organizations. At least one full-time, salaried staff person will be assigned to research grant-making organizations, making or following up on contacts, writing grant proposals, and following up on grant proposal submissions. Once research has identified an organization that might be willing to consider making a grant to support an activity of the agency, a contact within the grant-making organization will be identified and a meeting to discuss the possibility of seeking a grant will be requested.
