This grant research tool receives notifications daily on available funding from federal, state, and local governments; corporations; and foundations that span the health and human services spectrum. Examples of available funding opportunities include:

    • Creating or enhancing new community health programs specific to the pandemic response
  • Grant request amounts should be in the range of $100,000 and $250,000.
