A Faster, Easier Way to Grant Funding

More than $600 billion in grants is available to local governments each year. But, many grant research tools on the market provide generic results, listing grants not relevant to cities and towns. With limited time and resources, municipalities need a faster, more cost-effective way to identify and apply for grant funding. That’s where Lexipol’s GrantFinder comes in. We’ve searched and sorted through thousands of grants to identify the federal, state, corporate and foundation grant programs available to municipal organizations. Our powerful online search tool helps cities, towns, counties, regional planning organizations and councils of government secure the grant funding they need.
