Grants Planning

Co-Chair:  Michelle Garcia, Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants

The Grants Planning Committee, a standing CJCC committee, supports a citywide approach to improve grant-related processes and procedures that impact public safety agencies and organizations seeking local, federal and foundation resources.  The Grants Planning Committee seeks to: 1) improve the number and quality of grant applications submitted to funders; and 2) support the establishment of policies and procedures that will assist agencies seeking and managing local, federal and foundation funding.

Participating Agencies:
