The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) is the state’s chief law enforcement office, charged with a broad mission to promote the well-being of Massachusetts residents, including protecting consumers and the environment, safeguarding civil rights, ensuring public safety, and advancing economic opportunity for Massachusetts residents. A central means of advancing our mission on behalf of the public is through the management of grants awarded by the AGO to non-profit organizations, municipalities, and related entities to advance our shared work on behalf of families and residents. In recent years, the AGO has created grants to serve consumers and families facing foreclosure, support voluntary mediation programs, increase youth employment, advance technology for those with disabilities, expand legal services to veterans, diversify the construction industry, and partner with schools and community-based organizations to combat relationship violence and the opioid epidemic. Additionally, the AGO applies for available grants to assist us in the important work that we do.

Grant application coordination duties will include writing and reviewing grant applications; providing support in assembling and submitting federal and state grant requests, including letters of intent, proposals, budgets, and presentations; maintaining a calendar to ensure the timely submission of letters of intent, proposal deadlines, and reports; coordinating pre-award and post-award activity of federal grants in compliance with federal and state laws, regulations, and policies; and prioritizing projects to keep multiple projects moving in a timely manner, meet deadlines, and manage supplemental materials required for proposals.
