General Information
When working with Region 10 on your grant project, you will assigned a Project Officer and a Grants Specialist to help make your project successful.

The Project Officer is your main contact. They are responsible for the technical side of your project and will provide program-specific information you need to apply for assistance. After you apply, the Project Officer will review your work plan for technical merit and your proposed budget. If you are awarded a grant, they will provide the funding to carry out the work, and monitor to assure all program requirements are met during the project period.

The Grants Specialist is responsible for the administration of your grant. Before the grant is awarded, your application, work plan, and budget will be reviewed by a Grants Specialist for compliance with various administrative regulations and standards. After you begin work on your project, your grant will be monitored for compliance with the various administrative terms and conditions that apply. The Grants Specialist will also process amendments to your grant agreement, if needed, and they will work with you to close out your grant when the grant period is over.
