Grants and Contracts

 

 
 
The Grants and Contracts team also serves as liaisons to external funding agencies and partners; facilitates development of agreements with project partners; and maintains current records reflecting grant activities at the City Colleges of Chicago.

Whether you are a seasoned grant writer seeking help with the submission of a proposal, or a beginner wishing to learn the techniques of writing and submitting winning proposals, we are here to support you in your efforts. The team provides: 
 
  • Information related to identification of sources for external funding by:

o    Increasing awareness of grant opportunities and the process of applying for funding;        

o    Maintaining and distributing up-to-date resource materials about funding opportunities;         

o    Monitoring legislative activities and appropriations that impact the grant programs at CCC.        

         

  • Assistance in proposal development:

o    Developing project concepts;        

o    Identifying appropriate funding opportunities;         

o    Writing grant proposals.         

         

  • Grants management support to project directors:

o    Working with Grants Accounting to monitor project budgets and expenditures;         

o    Monitor contract and grant compliance; and         

o    Ongoing evaluation of the funded project’s progress and impact.         

         

Please note: All grant proposals must be coordinated through this office.​​​​​​
