Through our Grants office, District 131 pursues major grants and funding to support our important work with students.

We identify funding sources and submit proposals to federal, state, private, and other external funding sources to meet the District’s goals and priorities.

We provide a range of services which include identifying opportunities, forging internal and external collaborative teams, writing and editing proposals, designing and preparing budgets, providing institutional narratives and statistics, securing institutional approvals, certifications and assurances, coordinating proposal submissions, and building and maintaining relationships with external funding sources.

In addition, the Grants office supports post-award administration of grants and sponsored projects.

Through the Grants office we manage the financial interaction with funders, assuring compliance with the District and funders’ policies, while minimizing the administration burden on faculty and administration. We coordinate and communicate within the District new grant and policy-related information.

Support our important work with students

Corporations, businesses, state and federal agencies, as well as non-profits can give in a variety of ways. The Grants office coordinates in-kind donations (product, cash, and services) as well as grants. Grant competitions or other sponsorship-related entities are coordinated through the Grants office.

Companies promoting workplace giving through employee matching gifts programs and other efforts that encourage their employees to give their time and/or money to charity, may contact the Grants office coordinator at (630) 299-7278.
