What We Do

Developing a successful grant project requires not only a good idea, but the know-how to put the idea into a succinct, yet detailed proposal that meets the funder's requirements and stands out from the hundreds of requests for funding each grant agency receives.

Oakton's Office of Grants and Alternative Funding wants you to succeed and will help you turn your idea into a competitive proposal. After talking with you about your concept, and obtaining the necessary preliminary approvals, the GAF staff will help pull together a grants team whose members will lend their expertise to determine budgets, technology and staffing needs, evaluation and data requirements, and other components of a successful grant proposal.

The grants team also will help keep the proposal development on task, to make certain that all facets of the proposal are completed in a timely manner.
