Grants Services

The Grants Services Department provides resources to assist local governments and their agencies, focusing on a wide range of community and economic development related projects.

Our staff assistance includes project planning, project development, grant writing, and grant management. Our objective is to match the needs of the community to the grant funding available to maximize opportunities and resources. Our staff serves as consultant, liaison, problem solver and project manager to make certain the project is feasible and contributes to a healthy, safe and sustainable community.

Our goal in assisting to shape our communities is to ensure a strong economical viable region. Check out our 2019 in Review Flyer to see how the Grants Department assisted Appalachian communities last year.
