Grant Development and Sponsored Programs
Mission: The CFCC Grant Development Office fulfills the mission of CFCC by applying for and securing grants from public and private sources. The Grant Development Office acts as a clearinghouse for all grants for the College and provides information, training and support to CFCC faculty and staff with an interest in applying for grants. The Grant Development Office functions as the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) for Federal grants only.
Purpose: The purpose of the Grant Development Office/OSP is to facilitate and increase opportunities for external funding and to provide information and assistance to faculty and staff in their pursuit of Federal Grants and non-Federal Grants, e.g., local, State and national grants from governmental entities, public and private foundations, and corporations.
How the Grant Development Office can assist you: The Grant Development Office (GDO) will work with faculty and staff to assess program needs, identify potential funding sources, and assist in submitting proposals to external sources. The GDO can assist with writing the proposal, including gathering supporting data, aligning with grantor intent, and assisting with budget preparation. However, the majority of the proposal narrative (purpose of the grant project, goals and objectives, etc.) should be drafted by the Program Director of the program that will be the recipient of the grant funds or by the designated Project Director for the grant. The GDO will review and edit the narrative prior to submission to optimize the potential for award. The GDO will approve the final budget and check for compliance with grantor and CFCC guidelines before proposal submission (electronically or by mail).
