Due to the continued influx of federal funds from the American Rescue Plan, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and the Inflation Reduction Act, there are a tremendous number of funding opportunities for communities; community-serving organizations; and state, local, and tribal government entities. There are also many websites and resources to help find the right opportunity for your community-identified goals and projects. Below, we have compiled a list of some of the resources used to track these opportunities for your convenience.
And if you are interested in a particular grant or cooperative agreement but need assistance with setting up a SAM.gov or grants.gov account, or with the application or potentially finding an appropriate partnering entity, please reach out to email@example.com.
