Grants and Resource Development

Grants and Resource Development staff provides management in exploring grants by assisting with identifying possible current grant funding opportunities.

Our mission is to encourage faculty and staff to develop successful grant proposals, primarily to federal, state, and private sources; to obtain grants that support Blinn College's Strategic Plan related to instructional improvement; and to foster effective implementation of grants once funded.


  • Identify sources of federal, state, local, and private funding
  • Facilitate the development of project type such as competitive grants, formula grants, continuation grants, or pass-through grants
  • Ensure that RFA/RFP are realistic and can be easily managed; and
  • Provide training for faculty and staff members on grant development and internal review processes.

The Grants and Resource Development team is available and ready to assist in the conceptualization of the submitted grants and resource forms.
