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.
Hives to Enhance Community Gardens
The program supports the set-up and maintenance of on-site bee sanctuaries in schools, community gardens and green spaces. Grants come in the form of honey or solitary bees, their homes, beekeeping equipment and information on how to care for the bees. Bees are strategically placed in locations where they can bolster bee populations, advance science and environmental education and pollinate locally grown food. Grantees also receive the Sponsor-A-Hive Teacherís Kit, which includes lesson plans and worksheets for use in teaching students more about their bee home.
