Grant Information:       Google search results on writing Proposals & Grants new item
      Grant applications for the Department of Commerce, as well as four other agencies, are on the federal government’s new one-stop Web site for grant opportunities.
     On December 9, 2003, HHS Secretary Tommy G. Thompson unveiled a single, comprehensive Web site that will contain information about finding and applying for all federal grant programs. The Web site,, makes it easier for organizations to learn about and apply for federal grants.    To date, application packages have been posted to the Web site by five agencies - the U.S. Departments of Commerce, Education, Energy, Justice and HHS.      This section will be expanded in the coming months as federal agencies continue to post application information about additional grant opportunities.
     Overall, the site contains information on more than 800 available grant programs at 26 federal agencies, totaling more than $360 billion. To search for Commerce grant opportunities, go to, click on “Find Grant Opportunities,” and then click on the “Search Grant Synopses” link. On that page, you can search for either all Commerce grant announcements, or select the “Community Development” and/or “Regional Development” categories. After you identify a funding opportunity you are interested in applying for, click on “Apply for Grants” to download an application."
