You have determined a project idea and are ready to begin the research to find the RFP that is the best match your project. 

There are many viable approaches to searching for and  locating project funding, but the most effective are those that utilize  appropriate technologies. With the specifics of your project in mind,  look for RFPs using the state, federal, and foundation grants  databases/search engines listed in this week’s Learning Resources. This  is an important step, so take your time in identifying grant providers  that issue grant awards that align to your organization’s specific cause  or need. Bookmark these websites to your own computer and keep notes in  the Process Development Template. Each website offers a wealth of  varied information for grant seekers that can greatly enhance your  developing understanding of grantsmanship. 

When reviewing RFPs, look specifically for the following information: 

  • Who is eligible to apply?
  • How many awards/grants are being given?
  • Dollar amount of the grant/award
  • Collaboration/partnership requirements
  • Length of the grant period
  • For private funders, who is on their board and does the applicant have any existing relationships with anyone?

Keep in mind:

  • RFPs that refer to online applications may tend to be less complicated.
  • RFPs for multi-year projects will be more complicated than those for a one-year time period.

Note: For purposes of this course, please adhere to the following parameters:

  • Do not use RFPs for a research project.
  • Do not worry about submission dates that appear on the RFP.

As you examine various sites, document where  you searched and the keywords you used. Keep in mind that if you do not  find an appropriate and applicable RFP (there isn’t always a funder for  every project), you may need to adjust your project or your project  plan. Assess your project honestly to determine whether or not you need  to explore another course of action. 

For this Discussion, analyze your search results for  state, federal, and foundation grants, and select the RFPs that best  match your project. 

Post a link (URL) for each of the  three RFPs that best align to your project(Helping single mothers become self sufficient to take care of their family without the help of welfare). Include a brief summary that  provides a rationale for each of your choices. The rationale should  address the alignment of the RFP to your project idea as well as  alignment of the funder itself. Why is this a good match?
