Finding And Applying For Government Grants

 by: Neal Brown

According to a U.S. government website, there are $400 billion in grants currently available in over 1000 different programs. Naturally with such a huge amount finding a program that you or your company might qualify for is a huge task.

This article will present some resources and strategies to locate and apply for grant programs that you may be qualified for.

The single best source for finding grant opportunities is the government site at www.grants.gov . There are four ways to search for grants on this website. The first way is a basic search. This enables you to search by a keyword, funding opportunity number, or CFDA number. The CFDA stands for Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance. This number and the funding opportunity number are used for specific grants. Once you have found a grant program, write these numbers down so that you will be able to return to the details of that grant quickly using one of these numbers.

The second type of search is by category. There are 21 different categories that you can search by including arts, employment, environment, health, and others. The third way to search is by government agency. There are at least 40 agencies offering grants.   (continued...)
