The federal government offers a number of grants to nonprofit organizations, including communities and educational organizations. Although ads for free government money are common, the federal government offers grants to individuals only for very specific and limited purposes. To find out about federal assistance for small business, see the Small Business Administration website at https://www.sba.gov/
Grants.gov serves two functions. It is a searchable database of grants currently available from federal agencies and it is the required system for making federal grant applications.
Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance
The CDFA is the searchable database of all federal grant programs.
The Federal Register gives daily updates on newly proposed and approved federal grants.
Rural Health Information Hub (RHIhub)
RHIhub is an information portal to funding programs that provide health and human services to rural residents.
Tutorials and webinars on writing grant proposals are available on the Foundation Center public website and from the Purdue Online Writing Lab Introduction to Grant Writing
Unfortunately, library staff are not able to help with the preparation of proposals. While we cannot refer people to grant writers, the Grant Professionals Association maintains a list of local freelancers which is available free of charge.
