(Welcome to the Office of Grants and Federal Resources (GFR
We are a coordinating agency of the Arizona Department of Administration. GFR helps state agencies, local governments, and non-profit organizations, find, win and manage grants. GFR strives to be the premier resource of training and technical assistance for the Arizona grants community. One of our primary goals is to simplify the grant pursuance process for grant opportunities offered by state agencies as local governments and nonprofits will be able to search all current state opportunities on this site. For our fellow state colleagues, you can access the state’s subscription to the eCivissystem through this website in order to find federal and foundation grant opportunities, as well as, manage your current open projects and grants.
You will also find information on complying with federal Executive Order 12372, “Intergovernmental Review of Federal Programs” and Arizona Executive Order 2013-09, "Establishing the Arizona Office of Grants and Federal Resources.” The maximum benefits from grant programs are only achieved by reducing unnecessary administrative costs while simultaneously improving program performance and outcomes, increasing overall results, while ensuring integrity, transparency, and accountability in the process. While GFR undertakes these lofty goals, we will chronicle our efforts and share helpful resources.
