To request a new grant through a competitive grant program, please contact the "Competitive Review Project Officer" based on the proposed project’s county.

If you are a “grantee” with an awarded grant project, or requesting Per Capita or RIRE Funding, please contact the "Grant Administration Project Officer" based on the project’s county.
