Grants Management Office

  • North Thurston Public Schools’ Grants Management Office assists teachers, principals, and district staff in seeking and securing grant funds for projects benefitting students, families, and staff.

    NTPS pursues competitive and formula (non-competitive) grant funding from federal, state, and local government agencies as well as nonprofit and private organizations. Grants generate approximately $35.5 million dollars in revenue annually. This equates to 19% of the district’s budget.

    All grant applications are developed in collaboration with the Grants Management Office to ensure proposals are aligned with NTPS strategic priorities and meet compliance standards. Staff interested in applying for grant funding submit the Intent to Apply for a Grant form to the NTPS grant specialist for review 10 days before the grant due date.
