CSAC Grants Initiative


CSAC Grants Initiative

The CSAC Grants Initiative is a partnership between the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) and The Ferguson Group (TFG) that helps connect counties with federal, state, and foundation grants. At CSAC, we use our knowledge of California counties and our 501(c)(3) to oversee the program while TFG uses their 40 years of experience to provide the services.


CSAC is offering all members access to no-cost grant resources, including our Weekly Grants Newsletter for staying informed, Project Ideas Portal for getting feedback, and Template Applications for writing grants. We’re still developing some of our no-cost resources and, for now, the best way to leverage all available tools is to submit your ideas—no matter how preliminary—to the Project Ideas Portal. We’ll follow up with consultations and resources.


In addition, the CSAC Grants Initiative also offers add-ons. Interested members can choose from our flat-rate premium options, including a suite of annual services a range of a la carte services—all discounted by 10%. Our premium options are affordable because you get CSAC’s negotiated discounts; efficient because you contract directly through CSAC; and flexible because you can treat the hours and services within your consulting package as fungible.

Please review our pricing guides for details. View our full pricing guide or select options to focus on seeing a program overview, our annual packages, or our a la carte services.
