The Online Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance

"The online Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance gives you access to a database of all Federal programs available to State and local governments (including the District of Columbia); federally -recognized Indian tribal governments; Territories (and possessions) of the United States; domestic public, quasi-public, and private profit and nonprofit organizations and institutions; specialized groups; and individuals. After you find the program you want, contact the office that administers the program and find out how to apply."

There are several domestic violence grants in this database.

This page also contains basic grant writing information "There are eight basic components to creating a solid proposal package: (1) the proposal summary; (2) introduction of organization; (3) the problem statement (or needs assessment); (4) project objectives; (5) project methods or design; (6) project evaluation; (7) future funding; and (8) the project budget. The following will provide an overview of these components."




"Sponsored Programs Information Network - The #1 Source of Funding Information. The SPIN database is currently provided through annual subscription to over 650 colleges, universities and industry clients worldwide. It is a computer database with detailed and up-to-the-minute information about thousands of Federal and Non-Federal funding opportunities."

This database is available from a University library or a local non profit advocate center.

Information on how to start a non profit organization:


"Perhaps the best way to really clarify to yourself what you intend to accomplish by starting a new nonprofit is to write a basic mission statement for your organization."

"Why does the organization exist?...It might be best to keep your mission statement to at most about half a page."

Try to "include [a] description of what you think will be the new nonprofit's
a) primary benefits and services to clients
b) groups of clients who will benefit from those services
c) values that will guide how your nonprofit will operate
d) how you'd like others to view your nonprofit"
