APPLICATIONS and accept grants ON BEHALF OF THE COUNTY
WHEREAS, the County of Albemarle finds it appropriate that the County pursue grant opportunities that might provide enhanced funding for important County initiatives; and
WHEREAS, grant application processes generally require that a grant application or proposal, certifications, and other supporting or related contracts or documents be submitted to complete an application or to accept grant funding; and
WHEREAS, to ensure that the County is well-positioned to apply for and receive grants, it is important to have an efficient process in place to meet the tight timetables often associated with many requests for proposals for grant funding or the acceptance of such funding; and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors hereby authorizes the County Executive, or his designee, to act on behalf of the County to execute grant applications or proposals along with any necessary certifications and supporting or related contracts or documents required to obtain or accept a grant, provided that such documents are approved as to form and content by the County Attorney.
