About Us - Grants Office

  • Discussion icon. All grants – large or small, public or private, district-wide or school-level – come through the SPPS Grants Office in one way or another.

    All grant requests for funds to be used anywhere in the district require approval from the Superintendent and the Board of Education. We can help with this.

    Application Development
    In addition to developing applications for high-value public and private grants, the Grants Office offers assistance to teachers seeking funds for projects in their classroom or school. Whether you require a financial document or help writing your application, we offer seasoned advice and professional support.

    Board Approval and Grant Contracts
    Until a grant award has received board approval and the contract has been signed by the superintendent, no money can be accepted and the program cannot begin. Working with the Grants Office from the beginning ensures a smooth approval process and timely payment.

    Budget Creation
    For reporting and auditing purposes, each grant requires a unique budget code. We turn your award check into a fully financed budget.

    Letters of Support
    The Grants Office creates letters of support for organizations and individuals applying for grants that will benefit SPPS students. 

    General Assistance
    Allowable expenses, reporting, closeout, carryover – we are here to answer your questions and help you implement a successful grant program. If you need guidance on the tasks necessary for proper grant management, we have expertise and resources.

    Contact Us early in the application process for any of these services.
