It seems the spigot has been scaled back a little. This week saw fewer federal funding opportunities open than any week in recent months. Perhaps the Memorial Day holiday slowed things down, but it's also true that the summer months usually don't see as many grants opening as in the spring and fall.
Even so, there are nearly 40 funding opportunities for your review. See them all here or glance at the three we've highlighted below.
