New Grants Management Coordinator

Hello Cumberland County!

I wanted to reach out and introduce myself, my name is Jennifer Lloyd and I am the new Grants Management Coordinator for Cumberland County Schools. I have been with the district for eight years and am very excited to be serving our school district in grant seeking and grant writing services.

Common sense concludes, better funding for our schools leads to better long-term outcomes for our students. School funding is the life blood for keeping educational efforts alive, however it is a scarce and limited resource. I believe grants are important in our district because they can bring necessary funds into our classrooms and district. Depending on the grant, this could be money for technology, materials, support staff and much more. Finding opportunities to increase funding takes time and research; this is where I hope to ease some of the burden, by providing resources such as this grants newsletter. I plan to not only make our district aware of grant opportunities but to also provide design and development of grants that support the vision of Cumberland County Schools. Increasing funding will ultimately help our school district achieve greater success for our students and leaders of the future.

Currently, I am working to research and identify a broad range of grant opportunities to inform our central office staff and school based grant contacts of funding opportunities. In the future I plan to conduct workshops for central office, administrative and school staff on grant development, writing, and management. I am also creating a grant resource digital notebook which will be provided to school-based grant contacts and district grants team to guide and support their grant work. I am committed to building a network within our school district and community to facilitate supplemental funding for our innovative programs in Cumberland County.
