New Jersey Department of Education

Office of Grants Management

The office aids LEA's, other agencies and Department program offices through the establishment, implementation and maintenance of systems to acquire, plan for, distribute and manage federal and state grant funds in a fair and equitable manner. It supports initiatives that promote academic excellence, teacher and leader effectiveness, school innovation and choice, and accountability. The office is responsible for three broad functions in support of an efficient, effective and accountable grants management system: (1) planning -- working collaboratively with program offices to design sub-grant programs that are consistent with the Department's goals and priorities; (2) sub-grant implementation -- supporting the implementation of individual grant projects to promote educational success; and (3) oversight and compliance -- ensuring that the Department's grants management system, including the management of sub-grant programs, will withstand the tests of audit and public scrutiny.
