Since not all federal grant-making agencies list grant opportunities each month, constituents are encouraged to visit grants.gov, the federal grants web site that allows users to electronically find and apply for current competitive grant opportunities from all 26 federal grant-making agencies.  In addition, users may sign up for email updates to receive new grant postings via email as soon as they become available.

Guide deadlines and guidelines may change.  Please check with the awarding agency before applying.
