Grant Administration

Duties & Responsibilities
The Administrative Services Division oversees grant administration for the Lake County Circuit Court. Activities in this area include researching grant opportunities from the state, the federal government, and private foundations. Staff then works with court divisions and community partners to prepare the grant applications.

New Grant Process
When new grants are received, the division brings the grant awards before the County Board, seeks the appropriation of the grant funding and processes the award paperwork. The division monitors the budgets of existing grant programs and prepares fiscal reports on either a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis, depending on the grant requirements. Grant close-out documents are also processed by the division.
