The Central Grants Office reviews, prepares, and submits grant applications to various funding sources on behalf of the City of Bridgeport and monitors the budgetary and financial aspects of grant use for compliance. The Central Grants Office seeks alternative sources of income, administers grant-funded programs, and serves as a funding resource center so that City Departments and locally-based non-profit agencies can improve, expand, or enhance programs and service delivery without increasing the burden of the city’s taxpayers.
