Discuss a grant opportunity and the project with your administrator and get approval to move forward.
The colleges and the district have Authorization to Apply for a Grant forms to initiate the approval process. As the approval process is different for each site, once you complete the form you must meet with your supervisor to determine the next steps in the process.
Below are examples of the Authorization to Apply for a Grant form for each site, as a reference. IMPORTANT: The colleges updates these forms fairly frequently. Please connect with the Dean or Vice President to get the form currently being used at your campus.
Communicate with Resource Development to indicate that tenative approval has been received to start developing the proposal. Because grant timelines are often 30-45 days from the date the request for applications is published to when applications are due, proposal development often occurs simultaneously while the authorization form is going through the approval process. However, a grant application will not be submitted unless formal approval through the authorization process has been obtained.
A copy of the Authorization Form with all required signatures must be submitted to Resource Development via email prior to submission.
