Federal Sources of Funding

The Federal government is still the biggest of all the grantmakers. Some of the federal grant budget moves to the states through formula and block grants. From there it is up to the states to decide how to use the money.

Each agency of government has its own systems and procedures, so you are wise to identify the principal federal agency that funds your type of work and track the distribution from Washington, DC down to your locality. This way you can begin the process of prospecting for federal funding.
