What We Do.
We will prepare your application for a specific grant for which your local government or not-for-profit organization is eligible. We will also make sure you are notified of grants for projects and programs you wish to undertake. As most grants are competitive we cannot guarantee that your submission will result in an award; however we will submit a grant application that reflects the priorities established by the grant awarding agency or foundation. As the Certified Local Government (CLG) Coordinator for the PHMC, I reviewed $2,000,564 of CLG Grants.
