The Council has two types of grant programs: Competitive and Solicited. Funding recommendations are made by the State Plan and Implementation Committee comprised of Council members with a final determination made by the full Council. All grants are subject to the same administrative, program and financial requirements.
Competitive: The Council develops and distributes Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for its Competitive Grant Program. The RFPs are specifically designed to achieve the goals and objectives of the Council’s state plan. The program has an application process that includes the submission of a grant proposal. The competitive nature of these grants requires extensive review of all proposals.
Solicited: The Council may identify projects for which specialized expertise or experience may be needed to accomplish specific goals and objectives in the state plan. In these cases, the Council may solicit a proposal from a state agency or university. Solicited proposals may occur at any time.
Requests for proposals will be published in a newspaper with statewide circulation. Copies of the notice will be provided on this website, on GCDD social media and to GCDD mailing list recipients and/or to other organizations upon request.
