- Grant Development Process
Grant Development Process
1. Brainstorming and Planning
- Identify the kind of project you want to create.
- Contact the Executive Director of Grant Development & Compliance to discuss your project and identify funders.
- Once a funder is identified, a Resource Development Officer will reach out to help you develop your project.
2. Project Development
- You will work closely with your Resource Development Officer until the project and budget are complete.
- Depending on the complexity of the proposal, planning meetings can occur over a period of days, weeks, or even up to a year.
3. Submitting the Grant Proposal
- Your Resource Development Officer will submit the completed proposal and budget for a series of internal approvals including Record to Report (R2R) staff; the provost’s office, and the chancellor’s office for final review and approval.
- Once all approvals are secured, your grant will be submitted to the funding agency.
4. Grant Award and Management
Back to Top
- Awards can take several weeks or months. Often, the application will specify award dates.
- Once an award has been announced, the Grant Compliance Officer will set up a grant kickoff meeting to discuss reporting due dates, project deliverables, hiring staff and/or evaluators, and any other grant-related tasks.
- Before any grant funds can be spent, you will be directed to Record to Report (R2R) staff for guidance with implementing your project budget.
