Grants must go through a series of approvals from the Rockingham County Commissioners. First, the department that is considering applying for a grant should present their proposal to the Commissioners at a regularly scheduled Commissioners’ meeting. If the Commissioners approve of the grant application, it can be signed by the Chair and the department can move forward with the application process. Any subsequent/resulting award documents (including grant agreements) need to be approved by the Board and signed, if applicable, by the Chair. A complete set of all grant documents should be forwarded to the Finance Office.
