The Grants Office receives continuing updates on new grant opportunities and revisions to existing grants. We share this with you through our Grants Database. The database includes a page for each funder, with summaries, deadlines, and links to the funder’s website. The database is revised and new grants are added periodically. And at the bottom of this page are links to New York State and U.S. Department of Education funding opportunities.
Or, if you prefer, we can do the research ourselves to find funders for your project. Signing up for the fee-based grant writing service entitles you to three free hours of research for EACH separate project that you’re looking to fund. For information on signing up for the grant writing service contact Laurie Streb in the Grants Office for details at (585) 352-2773.
