Role of Grant Administrator
The grant administrator will be responsible for outreach, marketing, and reporting of funds they administer. The state of Tennessee’s CARES Act compliance partner, HORNE LLP, will work with the grant administrators to facilitate outreach and provide training on program specifics where needed. All reporting will be done through the TN CAMS system. The grant administrator will take applications, approve funding, and monitor the programs as funds are spent. The grant administrator will also be responsible for coordinating with TEMA on Stafford eligible expenses so that those expenses can be evaluated by TEMA.
How to select the right Grant Administrator
The grant administrators span across the state of Tennessee and are intended to be a local point of contact to their respective communities. Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee is serving as a grant administrator with statewide coverage for proposals related to food relief. When selecting your preferred grant administrator, please consider the geographic region of your organization’s headquarters, but also the best fit for your program needs.
