NJSBA, in partnership with the Grants Office, offers grants information, consultation, and support through the NJSBA Grants Support Program.
Billions of dollars are distributed to schools each year from federal, state, and foundation grant funders. The U.S. Department of Education alone, one of 26 federal grantmaking agencies, distributed more than $19 billion in grants in 2013.
As a membership benefit, NJSBA provides:
Funder identification and consultation are available in two levels of support.
Click on “Request Research” in the grants search tool available through the Grants Portal, and you can request a report of funders for a specific project. In about a week, a Grants Office consultant will deliver the report, with details on funding opportunities from federal, state, and foundation sources based on the project information you provided. The consultant will also review your report with you in a follow-up call of approximately one hour, to answer any questions and help you target your best prospects.
This service costs $695 per request, and you will need to enter a valid purchase order number when making the request.
Level 2 support provides any employee of Level 2 participating districts or charter schools and their affiliated local educational foundations with unlimited access to Grants Office consultants through the Grants Office Helpdesk.
Typical Helpdesk support includes:
Helpdesk requests can be submitted by Level 2 users by email, phone, or on the NJSBA Grants Support Program Portal. The Helpdesk will be available by phone from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
The fee for Level 2 support is based on the number of students served by the district as follows:
|Total Students||Annual Cost|
Level 2 program participation runs from July 1 – June 30, and the fee will be prorated appropriately for members that register for Level 2 services after July 1.
NJSBA members may also request proposal development services through the NJSBA Grants Support Program. Fees for proposal development are based on the complexity of the grant application and the anticipated level of effort required to develop a compliant proposal. Regardless of the program, NJSBA members are eligible to receive a 25 percent discount off Grants Office’s standard proposal development pricing.
