Grant Management & Legislative Projects
APS Grant Management can be described in three areas: 1. Grant Writing: Contact the District Grant Writer/Manager when applying for a grant. 2. Legislative Projects: Contact the Legislative Project Team for these projects. 3. Post Award Grant Management: Contact Grant Management once an award has been granted.
The Grants Writer / Manager oversees the district-wide grant pre-approval process to align funding efforts with district goals. The Grants Writer / Manager supports educators and directors through the pre-approval process, assists with grant research & writing, and stewards proposals to completion & submission to funders.
Grant Management Department
The Grant Management Department monitors compliance and provides technical assistance to schools and program units that are awarded federal, state, local or private grants. The department's primary task is to monitor the budgets, expenditures and required financial reports for all the district's grant funds. It is our primary responsibility to ensure that documents are complete, accurate, and coded correctly. We are then responsible for securing the reimbursement from the grantor. Although we rely on the program departments within APS to ensure the programs are running correctly, we do have a financial responsibility to ensure the payments are accurate.
This office works closely with schools, principals and legislators. Legislative officials earmark funds for special projects throughout the district. The Legislative Projects team provides technical assistance, guidance and compliance on these special projects.
