Any grant requests that involve technology must include Lori Patterson’s signature.  Please give her your application at least two business days before the grant deadline so she has time to review it before signing.

In previous years, we required applicants to submit a draft RQ with the application.  In order to reduce workload, we are now only requiring a budget and completed signature page with the application.  However, you must still use District-approved vendors and will be required to submit an RQ if you are awarded a grant.
