Grant Department

Responsibilities

The Quapaw Nation Grant Department researches and writes grant proposals for funding for the Quapaw Nation. Because grants require complex and in-depth information within their application process, the grant writer must understand the program, its financial details, and where to find appropriate funding. In today’s grant writing environment, a successful proposal must match the requirements of the grant with the needs of the department submitting the application.
