The summary for August includes new or updated opportunities in the following areas:

  • Community Service
  • Education
  • Energy

  • Health & Human Services
  • Homeland Security
  • Housing

Please note that the U.S Census Bureau is now offering workshops to advise grant seekers on the basics of incorporating census data into a grant proposal. For more information, or to request a workshop for your organization, call 888-806-6389, or send an email to laro.pds.list@census.gov. More information is available on their website, at www.census.gov/regions/los_angeles.

We encourage you to visit the Grants Assistance section of Congressman Peters’ website (http://scottpeters.house.gov/services/additional-services-and-resources/grants) to learn of upcoming workshops throughout the district. Members of the Congressman’s staff are also in attendance at these workshops and look forward to speaking with you about how our office may be able to support your federal grant application.

Because not all federal grant-making agencies list grant opportunities each month, constituents are encouraged to visit www.grants.gov, the federal web site that allows users to electronically find and apply for current competitive grant opportunities from all federal grant-making agencies. In addition, users may sign up for email updates to receive new grant postings via email as soon as they become available.

Application deadlines and guidelines may change. Please check with the awarding agency before applying.

Registration

Before you apply for a grant you must complete the Grant.gov registration process. The registration process can take anywhere from three business days to four weeks, which is why it is important to register early. Please refer to the Organization Registration Checklist for extra assistance with the registration process. Registering with the System for Award Management (SAM) is completely free of charge – there is no fee for you to register or to renew/update your organization’s information.
