In May of this year, we launched the Grants.gov Community Blog from scratch. Every week has brought new growth in article views and in blog subscribers. Many of you who are reading this post in your email have been with us from the beginning – thank you!
“How do you bring together a community?”
This is the question we at Grants.gov set out to answer as we laid the foundation for this new Community Blog.
If you’ve made your way to this space, you’re very likely interested in the role that the federal government plays in funding programs, projects, and research for the benefit of the public.
You might be a prospective applicant looking to secure a government grant for an urban education program, or a few minutes away from clicking “Submit” on a grant application you’ve spent weeks (tirelessly) preparing.
You might be a federal employee posting a grant opportunity for your agency. You’re interested in making sure the public knows about the funding available to them.
