Schools seek grant writer

EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado ” The Eagle County School District is looking to hire a full-time grant writer, who would be in charge of finding and landing federal, state and private grants.

There’s millions of dollars in grant money out there, but it’s essential to have someone dedicated to finding grants, applying for them and managing them once they’re awarded, said Phil Onofrio, chief financial officer for the school district.

It’s the sort of position that will, ideally, pay for itself. The school district’s last grant writer brought in the $6.7 million Teacher Incentive Fund grant, which supports the district’s performance-based pay system.

The position would also have the title of “fundraising coordinator” and would be responsible for building relationships with nonprofit groups in the county.
