What is The Grant Portal?

We are a premier grant listing directory and database. We have developed a proprietary grant searching engine. We strive to be the one-stop source for reputable, reliable, and up-to-date grant search information. The Grant Portal is a subscription-based website. 

Why does The Grant Portal charge a fee?

You can locate grants for free on your own - but for people who are short on time, staff, or don't know where to start - they can use our extensive service to make it easier to find grants! Our service is targeted towards nonprofits and established for-profits (businesses). We are a proprietary listing directory, and our diligent staff spends each working day adding verified grants to our database. 

How do I add or list a grant to The Grant Portal?

You can list a grant to our site by visiting "Add a Grant" displayed in our website's navigation tab. Once your listing has been verified and approved by our team, it will be added to our site. 

How can I be added to your email list?

If you wish to join our email list and receive our free weekly newsletter, please “sign up here”. Check your spam folder if you do not receive our emails in your inbox within 7 days. 

Can I search for grants based on my recipient type?

Yes, we have filters available to help narrow down your search. 

  • Grants for Nonprofits
  • Grants for Small Businesses/For-Profits 
  • Grants for Individuals 

Once you click on the link above, select your 'Location' by choosing your State. 

Then, use the 'Category' dropdown menu available to filter your grant interests. We highly recommend selecting only one location and one category at a time for the most efficient results. 

Do you have grants for my location?

Our database includes grants for all 50 USA states, US territories, Canadian provinces, as well as an international selection. 

Will I need a grant writer?

Each grant has a different application process. Some applications are simple and designed to be completed without the need for a grant writer. Typically, however, larger sum grants require a more extensive application and knowledge process. We recommend hiring a grant writer if you are not comfortable completing the grant application process yourself. 

Why can I not see the full grant details?

As a free Member, you have limited access to The Grant Portal. You will not be able to view the full grant details, nor apply for grants. You will need to upgrade to a paid account if you wish to have full access.
