    Grant coordinators play an integral part in managing EACs financial status. This officer position was created to ensure that the Equal Access Clinic continues to be funded. We are currently supported by two major grants and are looking for additional major sources of funding to provide our patients improved care. The Grants Coordinator will work closely with the executive director and finance director to submit new grant applications and coordinate updates for current funding sources.
