Meet Patrice 

My name is Patrice Davis and I am the founder and CEO of Grants Works, a grant consulting company, and the lead trainer for Grants Works Academy.

I have over 13 years of experience managing or overseeing federal grants for large and small nonprofits, a top research university, and I reviewed grant continuation applications when I was employed at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

I managed federal awards as a recipient, subrecipient, pass-through entity and my work as a federal employee helped inform my experience.

Since 2005, I successfully administered over $129 million in federal, state and county grant funding from 17 city, county, state and federal agencies.

I provided training on Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200), HHS’ adoption of Uniform Guidance (45 CFR 75) and managing grant-funded travel. I am also a fiscal consultant during site monitoring visits of federal recipients of grants from the Health Resources and Services Administration.

I am a member of the National Grant Management Association, Grant Professionals Association, and Georgia Grant Professionals Association.
