The mission of the Department of Grants Administration (or DGA) is to facilitate access to discretionary, external funding for divisions, departments, agencies and other units of the Sullivan County government while improving the administration of existing funding/grant resources.
The DGA seeks to be a part of the County’s’ overall effort to enhance the economic and community development within the County. DGA may be of assistance by supplying funding resource information to individuals seeking to establish a business in Sullivan Co.; not-for-profit organizations seeking to expand programs or services within Sullivan Co.; and the County’ respective municipalities.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: DGA has limited staffing and gives priority to grant requests from divisions, departments, agencies and other units of the Sullivan County government, the County Legislature and the County Manager. Assistance for municipalities and 501(c)(3) organizations will be determined by the availability of DGA staff and by the constraints of other grant deadlines. The decision to provide external assistance is made by the County Legislature and/or the County Manager, and is based on DGA staff availability.
If you are seeking DGA assistance in locating potential funding sources for your need, please complete the DGA Funding Resource Request Form available here.
The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan (CFOS) has renewed its commitment to distributing funding to local nonprofits through our Orange and Sullivan COVID-19 Response Fund.
