Grant Development & Compliance Office
Grant Development & Compliance can tap into a variety of resources to help you locate potential funders, including a funder database, listserv sources, online tools, and comprehensive knowledge of federal, state, and private grant opportunities.
Colleagues are often good sources of information. Contact your peers inside and outside of ACC to ask about their grant efforts for similar projects.
Look in association journals, websites, and newsletters for potential funder ideas or leads on grant ventures. Consider the organization’s national or regional clearinghouse as a possible resource.
After you have located a funder, you can increase your odds of receiving an award if you contact the agency. Share your idea with the program officer, and consider revising your idea based on their feedback.
Grant Development & Compliance will help you identify a funding source; however, if you’d like to search for grant opportunities on your own, check the following organizations:
- U.S. Department of Education
- Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board
- National Science Foundation
- U.S. Department of Labor
- Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts
- National Endowment for the Humanities
- Health Resources and Services Administration
- The Lumina Foundation
- The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
