AoA Grant Programs
The Administration on Aging is now requesting that all applications for AoA funding opportunities be submitted electronically through www.grants.gov. The “Grants.gov” site allows organizations to electronically find and apply for competitive grant opportunities from all Federal grant-making agencies.
The charter of Grants.gov, one of 24 President’s Management Agenda E-Government initiatives, is to provide a simple, unified electronic storefront for interactions between grant applicants and the Federal agencies that manage grant funds. There are 26 Federal grant-making agencies and over 900 individual grant programs that award over $350 billion in grants each year. The grant community, including state, local and tribal governments, academia and research institutions, and not-for-profits, need only visit one website, Grants.gov, to access the annual grant funds available across the Federal government.
