Grants Management Section (GMS)

The purpose of the Grants Management Section (GMS) is to identify public and private grant opportunities that support the Department's mission to protect and enhance public safety and to facilitate the grant application process to maximize the Department's chances to obtain grant funding. GMS also oversees the implementation of grant funded projects and ensures that all such projects are managed effectively and that all grant funds are effectively used, managed and reported. GMS also takes the necessary steps to close out grant funded programs once all awarded funds have been exhausted.
