Funding Sources for Community and Economic Development 1997: A Guide to Current Sources for Local Programs and Projects. Third Edition.
This guide contains information on 2,086 funding programs that provide support on national, state, and local levels for economic and community development, social services, and the humanities. The guide begins with "A Guide to Proposal Planning and Writing" (Lynn E. Miner), which includes strategies for locating information on public and private grants, systems and procedures for organizing and processing grant information, tips for writing the major components of public and private proposals, and a sample letter proposal to a private foundation. A list of World Wide Web sites provides additional information on sponsoring organizations and their application procedures. The main section of the guide lists grant programs in alphabetical order. Each entry includes a program description stating the program's function and goals; restrictions and requirements; brief descriptions of recently awarded grants including recipient name, city and state, purpose of the award, amount, and date; funding amounts; deadlines; when appropriate, the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance program number; and a contact person. Four indexes provide cross-referencing: (1) the subject index lists all program titles and accession numbers under subject terms that target specific areas of interest; (2) the sponsoring organizations index lists all program sponsors alphabetically, each followed by the titles and accession numbers of their funding programs; (3) the grants by program type index lists 26 program categories covering areas such as awards/prizes, capital construction, community development, cultural outreach, institutional development, dissertation/thesis research support, educational programs, environmental programs, fellowships, scholarships, and training programs; and (4) the geographic index lists programs that have a state or regional geographic focus, by state.
