Plenty of grant opportunities opened this week. In fact, there are more than 60 new federal funding opportunities for review. You'll find a variety of education programs via the department of state, disease-specific research grants and money to fund a variety of programs related to the opioid crisis.
There are also quite a few programs that are eligible for state funding in fish and wildlife, school nutrition and juvenile justice. Look for this funding to potentially reach nonprofit organizations via state agencies and departments rather than directly from the federal government.
We've highlighted three grants below that we thought would be of general interest. See all new opportunities here.
