Grant Administration

Grant preparation and administration is one of the many services WAPDD provides to their members. Receiving funding is always good news to any community; however, administrative guidelines of grant programs must be followed to make the project a reality. These administrative services include helping communities and counties to establish development priorities through public hearings and other types of public participation processes; helping establish the eligibility of projects for funding under the guidelines of various appropriate funding programs; investigating, applying for, and leveraging funds among various funding sources to achieve the optimum benefits for our member communities; completing environmental reviews, assisting with the bidding process, organizing requests for payment applications; assisting with acquisition, complying with labor standards, and completing the project close out.
