Grant Development Process

EMCC Grants: Initial Steps for Submitting a Grant Proposal--Pre-Funding

Please review the following steps EMCC utilizes to organize and evaluate grant proposals for the college. If you pursue a grant on EMCC's behalf without following the procedures outlined below, your grant will not be allowed to be submitted. This includes grants conducted by third parties that require the use of EMCC facilities and/or resources.

Talk to your Division Chair or Program Director to obtain initial support for your grant idea.  Ask the Director to discuss the approval to move forward with the grant proposal with their Dean or Vice President. Once they have provided consent to move forward, forward the email to the EMCC Grants Officer-Senior. 

Meet with EMCC Grants Officer-Senior to review campus and District timelines and learn how to complete the EMCC Grants Vetting Form. 

Once you complete the EMCC Grants Information Form located on the EMCC Grants Forms page, the Grants Officer-Senior will forward the proposal to the EMCC Grants Vetting Team for their evaluation of the opportunity. The Grants Vetting Team will address any college issues and/or concerns and will also provide final approval to move forward with the grant submission. 

After the proposal is approved via the Vetting Team; identify and confirm the participation of the Principal Investigator, Assigned Administrator (Dean or Vice President), and planning team members. If your grant reaches across departments with academic, student services, and facilities components, make sure to include a representative from departments other than yours to keep all stakeholders abreast of grant program expectations.

Meet with the EMCC Grants Officer-Senior to develop a schedule for grant deliverables and team meetings in order to complete the grant proposal on time.

After creating a Grant "Work Plan", cooperate with the Grants Officer-Senior to complete a submission of the grant proposal to MCCCD Grants Development 10 days (working days Monday-Friday) prior to the funder deadline. The grant will be reviewed and must be signed off on by the Provost in the Office of the Chancellor.
