April 2005Vol. 6, No. 3Funding Resources for Faith-Based and Community Organizations

The Grant Opportunities Notebook provides faith-based and community organizations with information on funding opportunities within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Now updated for 2005, the Notebook includes descriptions of over 40 discretionary and block or formula grant programs. Although HHS announces thousands of funding opportunities each year, the Notebook focuses on those that are most relevant to faith-based and community organizations. Grants are grouped into the following categories:

  • At-Risk Children and Youth
  • Senior
  • Health
  • Substance Abuse and Mental Health

The block and formula grants are listed in the Partnership Opportunities section.

The Notebook was developed by the HHS Center for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives in partnership with the Administration for Children and Families, the Health Resources Services Administration, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Unlike the 2004 edition, the 2005 Notebook is not available in print. Copies can be downloaded from the HHS website at (PDF - 1,761 KB).
