for funding can be time-consuming. To help make your job easier, CSAP's
Southwest CAPT has gathered a list of several sites containing information
on federal funding resources, grant sources, areas of interest, submission
procedures and deadlines for prevention activities. These sites are
sponsored by private grantwriting consultants, others by non-profits
and others by colleges and universities, While some of them will be
more useful than others depending on your organizations need, they contain
valuable advice and materials in the fields of youth development and
youth risk behavior prevention, focused specifically on alcohol, drugs,
sex, tobacco and violence.
Southwest CAPT, having no control over the contents of these sites,
neither endorses nor takes responsibility for the contents of web sites
not under its direct control. Our intent is to help you through the
funding process. As CSAP's Southwest CAPT receives notices of
federal funding or other grant resources which we believe may be of
use to persons and organizations in the prevention community, this information
will be posted below on this page. Please check this page frequently
if you are interested in applying for a grant or federal funding.
