About Us

The Florida Grant Developers Network K-12 was founded in 2004 by group of grant professionals working in public school districts in Florida. The Network was created help grant developers by providing opportunities for networking to share their expertise, knowledge, best practices, and to solve common problems in order to better meet the needs of the public school systems they serve. The Network today connects grant professionals working in nearly all of Florida’s 67 public school districts.  The Network hosts two forums a year, generally having one in Tallahassee with key leaders from the Florida Department of Education, including executive team members, program officers, and financial and technical specialists.  The Forums are multi-day conferences where members and invited guests present best practices, research findings, tips and tricks, and professional-level training in grant development issues. From time to time, committees are formed to develop white papers of special interest to the membership for distribution to legislators, professional associations, superintendents, and state and federal program officials. A members-only Listserv provides a constant e-mail forum in which all members share questions, concerns, solutions, and discoveries with each other. This instant communication system provides every member with the full access to the expertise of the grant experts all over the state.  For more information and membership registration instructions click here to download an organizational brochure.
