Helpful Resources

GOVERNMENT AGENCIES –  Provides a common website for federal agencies to post discretionary funding opportunities and for grantees to find and apply to them. The system houses information on over 1,000 grant programs and vets grant applications for federal grant making agencies.

Using the system makes it faster, easier and more cost effective for grant applicants to electronically interact with federal grant-making agencies. It also provides the following key benefits, among many others, to the grant community:

  • Helping the grant community learn more about available opportunities;
  • Facilitating interaction with the federal government;
  • Simplifying the grant application process to save applicants costs, time and hassle;
  • Making it easier to research and find federal grant opportunities;
  • Making electronic grant application processing easier; and
  • Providing a secure and reliable source to apply for federal grants.


NYS Grants Gateway -  If interested in New York State funding, we recommend you visit the NYS Grants Gateway. This online portal is available to the public, providing one- stop shopping for anyone interested in locating grant funding opportunities with State agencies.  The New York State Grants Gateway serves as the primary outlet for State agencies to post upcoming and available funding opportunities. The Gateway went live on May 15th, 2013 and all opportunities can be found in the Grant Opportunity Portal. The Portal offers a simple way to search for available and anticipated grant opportunities, download grant opportunities, and register to receive email notifications when specific types of grant opportunities are posted.

Important to note that many State agencies are transitioning to the NYS Grants Gateway System when applying for State funded programs; and if awarded funding, for award agreement / contract execution.
