Resources for Seeking and Preparing Governmental Grants

The primary resource for searching and applying for federal grants is through the website Grants.gov.

All discretionary grant opportunities from a total of 26 grant-making federal agencies are posted on Grants.gov.  The database of open grant opportunities is searchable by key word or by federal agency.   If you are interested in a particular federal agency, please visit the “Tips and Resources from Grantors” page on Grants.gov for more agency-specific information.

Additionally, most federal and state agencies maintain a web presence for their funding opportunities and grants policies.  The resources listed below include links to funding opportunities and databases maintained by federal and state agencies as well a Grant Proposal Guides and other resources to assist you in crafting your proposal.
