Federal & Foundation Assistance Monitor

Federal & Foundation Assistance Monitor is your source for new public and private grant opportunities, policy news and fundraising tips.

You'll find FAM filled with a comprehensive review of federal funding announcements, private grants, and legislative actions affecting community programs including education, economic development, housing, children and youth services, substance abuse, and healthcare. Each grant notice is categorized by subject matter.

For foundations, it indicates areas of interest and projected grant awards, as well as funding priorities for both national and regional organizations. In addition, FAM contains proposal-writing tips to help grant coordinators and development professionals write more successful applications.

FAM also offers advice from grant officials on exactly what funders are looking for, and details key points from fundraising workshops sponsored by the Foundation Center, the Support Center, and other public and private agencies.

Frequently FAM obtains advance notice of proposed regulations, agency memorandums, and other items unavailable elsewhere.
