Finding Federal Grant Funding
Grants.gov provides a searchable database of currently available federal grants. You can also sign up for email notifications on all federal grants, or on grants meeting criteria such as specific categories of funding activity (e.g. Education, Employment and Training, Cultural Affairs) or eligible recipients (e.g. Public and State Controlled Institutions of Higher Education). You can also asked to be notified about a specific funding program using its Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) identifier (see below).
The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance website includes a comprehensive database of federal programs that provide assistance of all kinds, including grant funding for local projects. You can use the database to view programs under a specific agency or keyword, get historical information on projects funded under that program, and find the CFDA identifier to use in setting up email notifications on grants.gov be notified when the program is open for applications.
