Welcome to the Grants Management Services (GMS) Web Site!  We strive to provide the most current VA grants management information and other related information affecting our grantees and Grant Program Offices.

About Us

The Department of Veterans Affairs, Grants Management Services was established in 2011 to address the need to create an overarching office which would provide for collaboration among the individual Grant Program Offices.  GMS develops policies and provides guidance on grants management issues to grants and affected offices at all organizational levels within the Department.  Responsibilities of GMS include, but are not limited to:

  • Developing and updating grants policy chapters, which are included in Volume X of the Office of Financial Policy (OFP) Policy Volumes.
  • Providing guidance to Grant Program Offices regarding the implementation of new guidance and regulations.
  • Developing administrative tools and templates for individual program offices to leverage.
