State and Federal Grant Resources

The Grants Development Subcommittee developed this resource to raise awareness among member regionals about grant opportunities. The list of national and state-level grants was the first phase of this resource. A listing of non-traditional resources, which includes grant directories, is also available. This listing is sure to expand and evolve over time. If you have additional grant opportunities to add to the list, please contact Laura Sullivan, Grants Development Subcommittee Chair.
