The Office of Grants Management (OGM) supports San Jacinto Community College District (SJCCD) by providing and managing the funding for accessible, affordable, high-quality basic skills training, post-secondary educational programs, and academic support. This is achieved through continued focus of the colleges' strategic goals:
In conjunction with 50 plus grant project directors, OGM cultivates partnerships with local, state, and federal, public, private, and nonprofit entities to secure the funding required for a wide variety of academic and workforce development programs. The OGM provides pre-award grant proposal application development and administration support and guidance to SJCCD faculty and staff applying for external and internal program funding initiatives. It coordinates post-award grant accounting, reporting, and auditing activities as required by awarding agencies. Utilizing its organizational knowledge of the grant market and institutional needs enables the OGM to leverage College strengths and faculty expertise to provide the District and its students with the highest quality financial support possible.
Befitting the diversity of the college academic and workforce development programs, SJCCD competes for funding from a wide variety of sources including local and national foundations, state funds, and federal funds. The Office of Grants Management portfolio is derived from federal sources (e.g., the Department of Education, the Department of Labor, and the National Science Foundation), Texas state agencies(e.g., Texas Workforce Commision and Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board), local foundations, and national foundations. Many of the SJCCD programs would not exist without this financial support.
The active grant awards portfolio consists of Federal, State and Foundation awarded funds to San Jacinto College for use toward the following costs:
