By logging onto the School Funding Services web site, you can create a custom grants search for a specific school, based on categories such as location, type of school, how funds can be used, application deadline, and a host of other criteria.

Each funding source has regularly updated information about its guidelines, the application process(es), and, in most cases, downloadable application forms.

We respond to all customer service questions received during business hours within 24 hours.

How long does a subscription last?

Where does the information in the grants database come from?
School Funding Services conducts all our funding research in-house. We gather information through extensive on-line research and correspondence with program coordinators at the federal and state level. We have a team of skilled researchers that work to search for funding opportunities and regularly update grant information in the database. Our competitive grants records are actively updated at least every 3 months, and often more frequently. Accurate and current information, as well as our searchable database, sets us apart from other funding information sources.

Why did New American Schools build this service?
In New American Schools' 10 years of experience working with schools, districts and education providers we continually heard that funding was the greatest stumbling block to school improvement. With our experience and resources we have tried to do something about that block. We envision School Funding Services as a tool that allows educators and service providers to spend less time searching for grants and more time focused on what’s important: helping students achieve.
