The National Grants Partnership

The National Grants Partnership was established in 2004 to bring together government and non-government individuals with an interest in improving the grants process in the United States. The NGP has identified several projects on which its members are working and anticipates undertaking further projects related to streamlining the grants process, funding the grants process more efficiently, and communicating new developments in applying, accounting and reporting for grants.

The NGP provides to stakeholders a forum for discussion and research on grants administration issues. We invite interested parties from federal agencies, state and local government, not-for-profit entities, and private-sector vendors to join the NGP and one or more of our projects. Our work is done mostly through project-groups; a link to the current projects is below. You may also suggest a new projects for the NGP to consider adding to its agenda.
