Finance Department Division of Grants and Accountability

The Division of Grants and Accountability is comprised of the following two sections: Office of Grants and Cost Planning and the Office of Financial Accountability. Together the two sections cover the entire life cycle of grants in Metro. Within the division's joint efforts, the sections ensure grants are well documented, that Metro agencies maximize grant reimbursements and ensure that grants are administered in compliance with grantor requirements.
