Grants & Development Service
$52,096,702.

= grant funding awarded to districts and BOCES since 2010

"Middletown's success at obtaining the $19.9 million Race to the Top-District grant was due in great part to the outstanding grant-writing provided by the Capital Region BOCES Grants & Development Service. We are thrilled with the new opportunities the grant funding will provide for our students and staff."
-Middletown Superintendent
Dr. Kenneth Eastwood


"You have written the most impressive grant application I have ever seen. Absolutely awesome!"
- Schoharie Superintendent
Brian Sherman, reacting to a $200,000 grant application written by the Grants & Development Service, which later received funding

The Grants & Development Service offers a flexible range of services, from basic workshops and access to an online searchable database, to editing of grant proposals and start-to-finish grant-writing. Our staff includes grant-writing experts with proven success in writing and obtaining local, state and federal grants, ranging in size from $500 to $19.9 million.

Between Nov. 2010 and Dec. 2015, 76% of our clients received at least one grant, and more than 76% received more back in grant funding that they invested in the service. That return on investment jumps to 95% for districts that have subscribed to the service for two years or more during the same period.

The service also offers a "Community Liaison" position to help enhance student programming. This staff person serves as an ambassador for school districts, researching and developing partnerships between school districts and alumni and/or businesses, colleges and other organizations. *Note, this is not a fundraising position.*

Grant-writing levels available:

Level 1: Knowledge
  • Free for all component school districts. Also free for non-component districts that contract for Level 2 or Level 4 service.
  • Weekly e-mail list of grant opportunities sent to unlimited number of staff members in your district.
  • Access to searchable online database of more than 600 grant opportunities (and growing!) targeted to school districts.
  • Annual workshop for staff on basic grant-writing, developing ideas for fundable projects or other topics as requested by participating districts. The workshop is held annually in February, with registration details announced in January. *Note, this workshop is open only to districts that are Capital Region BOCES components, or Level 2 or Level 4 Grants Service clients.*
Level 2: The Basics
  • Grants & Development Service staff meet annually with district staff to complete a needs assessment and help districts determine and outline fundable projects/proposals.
  • Research and identification of viable grant opportunities (a minimum of three) that would be good matches for priority projects. Additional research can also be conducted throughout the school year as priorities change.
  • Up to 16 hours of writing, editing or coaching support.
  • Assistance with identifying potential collaborations/partnerships.
  • Level 2 subscribers receive priority when demand for grant writers is high.
Level 3: Grant-writer (Hourly)

Work can include any of the following:

  • Writing complete or partial grant proposals.
  • Editing grants written by district staff.
  • Support and coaching for district staff members writing grants.
  • Assistance identifying and facilitating collaborations/partnerships.
  • Follow-up on proposals submitted.
  • Customized workshops on grant-writing fundamentals for district staff.
  • Client districts need not purchase Level 2 to access Level 3 assistance.
Level 4: Grant-writer (Annual)

Annual service options are also available for the work listed under Level 3. These hours are delivered as needed and are available in increments of about 150 hours, up to about 1,500 hours. Level 4 subscribers also receive priority when demand for grant writers is high.

Community Liaison assistance:

Help on an annual basis to develop partnerships between school districts and alumni, businesses and/or other organizations.
