Strategic Grant Services Program (SGSP)


The County of Monterey recognizes the need to pursue grant opportunities to fund projects and programs to serve our community. Many County departments routinely pursue grant funding from state and federal sources, and private foundations. The Board of Supervisors created the Strategic Grants Services Program to concentrate funding efforts on the County’s highest priority needs and projects which require a high level of collaboration among County departments and/or community partners. The Program has a limited workload capacity which is directed by the Board through an annually adopted Work Plan. The Program works in close collaboration with the County’s Legislative Program, which aims to maximize funding opportunities through state and federal sources which translate into possible County funding opportunities. The Program is executed by the County Administrative Office – Intergovernmental & Legislative Affairs Division (IGLA) with the assistance of the County’s grant consultants, and with a high level of collaboration with County departments.
