Grants Hub

For GRANTEE RESOURCES, including Louisville Metro Government Grants Management System trainings and User Guide, click GRANTEE RESOURCES.




Many of Metro’s initiatives are supported by federal, state and private grant funding. External dollars allow Metro to strengthen existing services, introduce new programs, pursue innovative concepts, and subsidize programmatic staffing and equipment. These grant funds support programs and services that benefit our community.

A coordinated approach ensures that Metro agencies follow a uniform standard regarding grant applications, management, reporting, compliance, close-out and relationship building with funders. This collectively improves Metro’s reputation among potential local, state and national funding partners, opening doors for new funding opportunities and further collaboration.

The Grants Hub ensures that:

  • All grant-related activity is consistent with the Mayor’s strategic goals
  • Metro agencies maintain good standing among existing and potential funding partners
  • Financial and programmatic requirements of grant awards are properly managed
  • Metro agencies have the tools and information they need to navigate all steps of the grants process
  • Duplicate asks to funders are avoided
  • Collaboration and coordination between agencies and with external partners are promoted and strengthened to reduce duplication of efforts.

NOTE: Please contact Janice Cates if interested in connecting with local/national foundations or corporations.
