Parks Master Plan

The Office of Grants Administration (OGA) identifies funding and partnership opportunities for all City Departments from Federal, State, Local, Foundations, and Private funding sources to maximize revenue generating opportunities.

In addition, OGA provides technical support to City Departments to ensure the implementation of policies and practices in compliance with applicable Federal, State, and local laws, regulations, and contract stipulations.
