Getting a Grant: Sources of Funding and How To Pursue Them
American Counseling Association
There are many different agencies and organizations which provide funding for those involved in research, community development, education, the provision of health and social services, and other activities. This publication is designed to serve as an introduction for counselors to sources of grant funding and particular grant programs, and to the grant application and dissemination process. There are three major sources of grant funding: foundations, state and local governments, and the federal government. Although some information regarding foundations as sources of grant funding is provided, the report focuses primarily on the federal government. For those interested in exploring state and local sources of grant funding, contact the relevant state agencies as resources listing state funding opportunities are limited. ok
