GrantFinder is an incredibly user-friendly database of grants and foundation funding for municipalities and non-profit entities.
It allows you to search for grants by funder name, type (Federal, State, Foundation, or Corporate), & the state the funder is located in.
GrantFinder allows you to search for funding opportunities using a keyword search, browsing by or limiting a search to a category (Arts/Humanities, Community Development, Education & Schools, Emergency Response, Environments & Parks, Healthcare Services, Housing, Public Works & Planning, Public Safety/Justice, Transportation, Technology & IT, Water/Wastewater, Workforce Development, & Community Development), specifying deadline details, (e.g. application is ongoing or due by, before, after, during, etc.), stipulating if there is a matching requirement, specifying geographic details (administering state, geographic coverage), limiting results by applicant (e.g. town/city/county government, non-profit, or PreK-12 educational agency), and any combination thereof.
