I am proud to announce that the Federal Government now
provides American Citizens with one online location to Find and Apply for grants across the Federal
Government. Grants.gov is the single location to find over 900 grant programs offered by the 26 Federal
grant-making agencies and provides the public with an accurate and reliable location to search for
As one of the 24 President’s Management Agenda E-Government initiatives, Grants.gov’s
mission is to provide a simple, unified Web site for potential grant applicants. By putting relevant
information in one place, we are helping organizations less familiar with Federal grant programs to
learn about and apply for these opportunities on a secure and safe Web location.
HHS is proud to be the managing partner for Grants.gov, an initiative that will have an unparalleled
impact on future grant applicants. It is a tremendous accomplishment for the Federal Government to
provide the grant community, including state, local and tribal governments, academia and research
institutions, and not-for-profits, this one Web site, Grants.gov, to access information on the $360
billion in annual grant funds available across the Federal government.
Thank you for visiting Grants.gov. Please be sure to take advantage of the many resources on the site
as you embrace this new way of doing business with the Federal government.

Secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
