What is GrantWatch?

GrantWatch is a recognized leader in the field of Grant Services and has been featured on CBS News, Entrepreneur, and Forbes. We strive to be the one-stop source for reputable, reliable, and up-to-date grant search information. If you are looking to secure grants for nonprofits, businesses, or individuals, GrantWatch is the place to start. 


How is GrantWatch different from other grant websites?

We are a subscription-based website. GrantWatch has developed a proprietary grant searching engine and was awarded the highest rating by TopConsumerReviews in both 2019 and 2020.


Why does GrantWatch charge a fee?

There is no fee to apply for grants, but there is a membership fee required to use our service. A limited number of grants are publicly listed on Government websites such as the Small Business Administration, Federal Grants, and State Grants. GrantWatch has created an extensive database, listing all these grants in a single, comprehensive directory. While we list all government grants available, this only amounts up to less than 30% of our database, with the remaining 70% of grants coming from foundations and corporation sources - which would otherwise be difficult to locate. The daily database updates make this service truly exceptional: listings are kept current and are archived when they expire. 


How do I find grants?

We also have a series of short tutorial videos you can view on how to find grants and better navigate our website here, including:

• How To Find Grants for Nonprofits

• How To Find Grants for Businesses

• How To Find Grants for Individuals


What is the difference between a Member and a MemberPlus+?

Free Members will be able to preview all grants on our database, making it an ideal way to see if GrantWatch is for you. However, you will not be able to view the full grant details, which include eligibility requirements, contact information, and application. You will be able to use other features available such as your grant search history, your grant views, and add grants to your calendar. Watch our short tutorial video on How To Become a Free Member and to receive e-newsletters about the latest grants available in your area.

A MemberPlus+ (paid subscriber) will receive access to the full utilization of the website including the full grant information, the keyword search filter, and priority assistance with our grants specialists. Become a MemberPlus+ user here.


Can I search for grants for recipient type and/or by location?

GrantWatch can filter search results by State, however, we are currently unable to filter by specific counties or cities at this time.

• Grants for Nonprofits:

• Grants for Small Businesses:

• Grants for Individuals:

Once you click on the link above, select your 'Location' by choosing your State (do not select the country unless you wish to view grants available to recipients nationwide,  which may cancel out grants specific to certain states.)

Then, use the 'Category' dropdown menu available to filter your grant interests. We highly recommend selecting only one location and one category at a time for the most efficient results.


Do you have grants for Africa?

We specialize in grants for the USA and Canada, but we also have some International grants listed. We do not specialize in grants for Africa at this time. We recommend contacting your local government, nonprofit organizations, and/or ministries for assistance.


Can I search for grants by my industry type?

Grant searches can be filtered for over 50 categories, including; Arts and Culture, COVID, Financial Assistance, Nonprofits, Individuals, Small Business, and grants for Women, among many others. The category list on the right-hand side of the GrantWatch site allows you to choose from additional categories at any time.

Grants that are applicable to you may be found in multiple categories. For example, a school teacher may find relevant grants in the following categories: Education, Teachers, Elementary Education, Children, and Awards.


How do I use the keyword search filter?

A MemberPlus+ subscription is required to access the keyword search filter. Please keep in mind that you may need to broaden your search terms if you are not finding adequate results. We do not provide a boolean search at this time.

For example, if you are a teacher searching for ‘iPads’, try also using the keywords ‘classroom equipment’, ‘technology’, or ‘improve classroom learning’.

Watch our tutorial on how to narrow your grant search using GrantWatch's keyword filter.


Do you have grants available to help start or grow my business?

Yes, we do have grants available and they can be found using these keywords:
• Grants specific to

Will I need a grant writer?

Each grant has a different application process. Some applications are simple and designed to be completed without the need for a grant writer. Typically, however, larger grants require a more extensive application process. We recommend hiring a grant writer if you are not comfortable completing the grant application process yourself.

No future charges will then be applied to your credit card.
