Funding and Grants Process
How to Get and Manage Funds
PCCD announces all funding opportunities on this webpage and you can subscribe to receive email notifications when these opportunities are available. Unsolicited applications are not accepted. Most funding opportunities are competitive, with agencies selected based on the merits of their submission. Both you and your agency must be registered with the PCCD's system to apply for and manage grants. Register for funding announcement notifications.
Applying for PCCD funding through Egrants is not difficult, but does require registering and establishing security roles. Allow enough lead time before applying for funds to process the necessary forms. Learn how to get and manage funds.
