The Grants and Awards Accounting Department operates within the Financial Services Division of JCPS. We provide the accounting services and reporting required of all federal, state, local, and specially funded grants received by the school district.
Grants and Awards Accounting reports on approximately 300 grants with total budgets in excess of $300 million. Major federal and state grants received by JCPS are Title I, Title II, Title IV, Safe Schools, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA-B), Extended School Services (ESS), Professional Development (PD), Instructional Resources (formerly Textbooks), KETS Technology, and Early Childhood. Several private foundations also provide grants to the district, such as the Jefferson County Public Education Foundation (JCPEF), General Electric, the Community Foundation of Louisville, and the Wallace Foundation to name a few.
Our office is made up of ten staff members. We have five accounting clerks, a senior accounting, two grant technicians, a coordinator, and the department supervisor.
The primary focus of this office is to provide efficient and accurate financial accounting and reporting of all grant funds received. We ensure that all grant requirements, as well as all JCPS policies and procedures, are strictly adhered to. Our primary commitment is to serve with excellence and integrity as we assist schools and grant directors with grant accountability and compliance.
Grants and Awards does not write grant applications. For assistance in writing, processing, and/or approval of grant applications/contracts, please contact the Resource Development Office at (502) 485-3290.
