USA Grants Banner

About USA Grants was established in 2014 as part of an agenda to provide better communication between grant makers and grant applicants. Managed by a staff of professionals and experts in grant writing, is an initiative operating under the governance of community members.

With community member and staff support, a system was chartered to provide a consolidated question and answer location for grant seekers to ask and answer grant related questions about funding opportunities. Today, the system is in its first year of operation and is working to foster a community presence.
