Additional Resources

The National Association of Counties (NACO) offers a members-only Grants Clearinghouse where you will find the tools and information to access federal grants available to county governments. Information about foundation, corporate and NACo grants to counties is also included in this section.

Grants.gov allows organizations to electronically find and apply for competitive grant opportunities from all federal grant-making agencies. Grants.gov is the single access point for over 900 grant programs offered by the 26 Federal grant-making agencies.

Successful grants can sometimes hinge on the applicant’s ability to write a grant proposal. “Writing Grants to Get Things Done”, presented at the National Wildland/Urban Interface Fire Education Conference (2004) by André LeDuc, Director of the Oregon Natural Hazards Workgroup, covers twelve steps to successfully developing and implementing grant proposals.

Your organization may be interested in becoming a tax-exempt nonprofit organization to qualify for federal grants. If so, visit the U.S. Internal Revenue Site for the details.
