Funding Sources

This section is dedicated to providing links to funders and funding databases that may be useful  in finding funding for  projects. The links are divided in areas of interest as much as possible, but be aware that some overlap in areas, so a link may be listed more than once. Also, this list is not conclusive, as new funders come about almost everyday. This section is targeted primarily to educator’s interest areas in seeking funding sources.

Federal Funding Databases

  • Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA). CFDA is an Internet database containing information about all federal domestic programs including federal grants, loans, insurance, and training programs; information is available on eligibility, application procedures, selection criteria, and deadlines. https://www.cfda.gov/
  • Federal Funding Sources for Rural Areas Database for Rural Areas Database. This online Internet database contains information about rural federal domestic programs including federal grants, loans, insurance, and training programs; Information is available on eligibility, application procedures, selection criteria, and deadlines. http://ric.nal.usda.gov/nal_web/ric/ffd.php
  • Grants.gov 1-800-518-4726 http://www.grants.gov
  • Grants.gov is an online database containing information on more than 900 federal grant programs. you can sign up for daily emails of federal grant opportunities. Just FYI- it is not filtered and you will get everything they are funding that has a CFDA (catalog of federal domestic assistance) reference number attached to it. Still, it is a great way to keep up with what is available through the federal government.
