Each Regional Manager has extensive experience at the local, county, and state levels in project development and funding. In addition to project planning, Regional Managers have the skill and resources to assist in budgeting, facilitation and strategic planning.

A Regional Assistant can help you manage your contract requirements and the financial obligations to your grant. They can provide training and resources for using the portal, filling out requests for reimbursement forms and reports, and finalizing documentation for your project.
