About Us

The grants officer provides technical support to build capacity among staff to write grants. CCSD applies for approximately 1,000 grants each year. There are hundreds of successful grant writers in CCSD schools and departments.

Grant Writing/Technical Assistance

Grants Money TreeThe grants officer works with CCSD staff to produce well-written and complete grant applications. Technical assistance is provided to schools and departments to find appropriate sources for funding; strategically review grant opportunities; communicate with funders; review, edit and submit grant applications; compile statistics and data for the grant; build grant budgets; develop grant goals &  objectives; and, obtain authorized signatures.

Collaboration on Partners’ Grant Applications

The grants officer is your communication link within CCSD and among partners when partnering on a grant. Communication is necessary to inform the superintendent and all other appropriate leaders about grant applications and their implications and, to coordinate appropriate channels of approval. Communication and collaboration increase possibilities for partnerships and guard against initiative overload.


The monthly Grants Alert is comprised of well-researched grant opportunities for schools.
