Leon County explores and pursues federal, state, and private sector grant funding opportunities in furthering the priorities of the community. Community partnership is important to the division’s day-today functions. Partnerships with local organizations have assisted in leveraging financial, technical, and human capital to draw attention to the community priorities at the federal, state, and local level.

To ensure the County maximizes grant leveraging opportunities, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) coordinates with department liaisons and actively seeks grant funding opportunities throughout the fiscal year. These efforts include contacting and communicating with previous funders for any new or forthcoming grant opportunities. Through timely submittals of reporting and invoices as well as satisfactory compliance with grant closeouts as well as on-site and desk monitoring by the granting agencies, Leon County has proactively positioned itself as a responsive and accountable funding partner. Because of this accountability, agencies often contact Leon County when grant funds become available.

In addition, the County’s partnership with Patton Boggs also garners access to recently announced federal funding opportunities and OMB routinely monitors the federal Grants.gov portal for granting opportunities. The County aggressively seeks state and federal grant funding to support County projects and initiatives and has achieved considerable success in leveraging County dollars.
