Since 2002, the federal government has been developing and implementing Grants.gov as a collaborative cross-government program focused on streamlining grants management for the Federal grant community.
Grants.gov is the one-stop-shop Website to apply for more than $400 billion in Federal grants. Managed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Grants.gov is one of the 24 E-Government initiatives operating under the governance of the Office of Management and the Budget (OMB). The Website centralizes grant information and electronic submission for more than 1,000 grant programs across the Federal government.
