Every week, we send you the newest federal grant opportunities so you can find funding that works for your organization.
This week, we want to send you something else, too. It's a gift, really.
We've compiled 20 years' of grant-writing experience into a primer of sorts. The Essential Guide to Getting the Grant is a user-friendly guide to grant writing. With tips and tricks, we'll show you how to become "grant ready" and write a winning grant narrative.
We hope you'll find it useful and share it with your colleagues.
In the meantime, check out this week's newest federal grant opportunities, three of which we've highlighted below. The list is longer than it was during the shutdown, and we anticipate that trend to continue next week as the wheels of government start turning again.
