Dissemination of Information Regarding Available Grant Opportunities [Base Service]
Through this Co-Ser, districts receive information regarding grant opportunities for which districts, schools, teachers, and students may wish to apply. The grant coordinator works with district staff to identify their needs and goals in order to research and customize notifications of corresponding funding opportunities on a year-round basis, giving the district more time to prepare for applications. The coordinator will also evaluate grants and the suitability of grant opportunities that districts may identify.
The fee for this service is on an annual basis.
Writing and Submission of Grant Proposals [Extension]
The grant coordinator and staff will partner with participating school districts in the development and timely submission of well-prepared competitive or allocated grant proposals. Services may include any or all of the following components:

- Gather research and documentation to substantiate the need for the grant program or project.
