Funding Resources
Federal Funding Grant Foundations Other Resources

Searching for funding can be time-consuming. To help make your job easier, CSAP's Southwest CAPT has gathered a list of several sites containing information on federal funding resources, grant sources, areas of interest, submission procedures and deadlines for prevention activities. These sites are sponsored by private grantwriting consultants, others by non-profits and others by colleges and universities, While some of them will be more useful than others depending on your organizations need, they contain valuable advice and materials in the fields of youth development and youth risk behavior prevention, focused specifically on alcohol, drugs, sex, tobacco and violence.

CSAP's Southwest CAPT, having no control over the contents of these sites, neither endorses nor takes responsibility for the contents of web sites not under its direct control. Our intent is to help you through the funding process. As CSAP's Southwest CAPT receives notices of federal funding or other grant resources which we believe may be of use to persons and organizations in the prevention community, this information will be posted below on this page. Please check this page frequently if you are interested in applying for a grant or federal funding.
