The Grants Unit provides strategic direction to the implementation of the CORE Grant Lifecycle Management (GLM) Modules, develops the grant community, provides comprehensive GLM Training and other GLM related resources for end users, develops and maintains statewide GLM policies and procedures, and assists the CORE Helpdesk on GLM tickets.
The Grants Unit also facilitates the Statewide Grant Managers Group (SWGMG) which provides quarterly training to grant managers and provides a forum for financial and program grant managers to share and collaborate on best practices in grant management.

Only the Grantee Module (incoming grants) has been implemented in the CORE system. Below are the Official Policies, several training slide decks and job aids to assist with Grantee entry.
If you need to get in touch with your department's Governor's Office analyst, please visit their Contact webpage for more information.
The Grantee Basic Training, Templates Training and Documents Training provide an intensive overview of CORE, the Grantee module and provides a step-by-step walk-thru of each template and document.
The Grantee Modified Training provides a less intensive overview of CORE and the Grantee Module. It is meant for those who have more experience with CORE, however still provides a step-by-step walk-thru of the templates and documents.
The Grantee Refresher Training provides a brief overview of CORE and the Grantee Module. This training is intended for those who have taken Basic Training or Modified Training and is meant to refresh CORE Grantee skills.
The Grantee Department Approvers Training provides a brief training for department personnel who will provide CORE approval to Grantee documents.
The Grantee Central Approvers Training provides a brief training for Central (OSC/Governor's Office) personnel who will provide CORE approval of GTOP documents.
There are several document job aids. Each is listed by the document code that is used in CORE and there is a brief description of each at the top of the job aid.
Template job aids are available to assist in setting up "behind the scenes" lists and actions. While Template set up is not required, using them could be beneficial when creating documents and in many cases allows for short cuts.
These job aids will provide assistance to those who have approval authority. There are two sections: Department Level Approvers, those that have permission to approve within their department, and Central Approvers, those that have general oversight, this is staff from OSC and the Governor's Office.

The Grants Unit has created an extensive list of common terms that are used in grants management. The list includes terms from Federal and State sources.
In grants management, sharing resources is amazing. No need to reinvent the wheel when you have colleagues who have created many tools already and are willing to share. Please check back often, as more resources are collected, they will be posted here.
Have anything you'd like to share? Please send your resources to email@example.com.
Provided are links to the Central Contracts Unit (CCU). They have many resources, tools and forms available for grants management as well as who to contact.
There are times when we just need a little assistance. The Grant Managers below have expertise in various areas of grants. If you have questions or even want to discuss grant specific issues, please feel free to contact one of them.
