Find Funding Opportunities

Opportunities and Services from the Federal Government

The number and variety of funding opportunities from agencies of the federal government have led to:

  • Multi-agency compilations of opportunities.  Coverage overlaps and differences in the products are not always obvious.
  • Agency-specific postings.  An individual with an interest in a particular agency will likely want to keep alert to all postings from that agency.

Multi-Agency Resources 

    • Established to "Provide a common website for federal agencies to post discretionary funding opportunities and for grantees to find and apply to them."
    • Manage Subscriptions allows users to set receive notifications about funding opportunities.
  • Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance
    • " is a government-wide compendium of Federal programs, projects, services, and activities that provide assistance or benefits to the American public. It contains financial and nonfinancial assistance programs administered by departments and establishments of the Federal government."
    • This goes beyond our usual interests, including training programs and pensions, but also might include grants for lab equipment and for training concerning energy efficiency.
  • Federal Register
    • Occasional opportunities to apply for federal funding, along with new federal regulations and various announcements.​
  • FedBizOpps: Federal Business Opportunities
    • Mostly about business opportunities outside of the usual university realm but with exceptions.
