What's New on SchoolGrants

Note to SchoolGrants Visitors:

If you are interested in keeping up on the latest grant-related news, grant opportunities, and upcoming deadlines, consider subscribing to the SchoolGrants Biweekly Newsletter for only $45/year per subscriber.  Resources, grant opportunities and news are almost always reported first in the Biweekly Newsletter. Out of consideration to those who pay the annual subscription fee, much of the information that appears in the newsletters is never posted to the SchoolGrants site.

Need Grant Writing Assistance?
Expert grant writing assistance is available through SchoolGrants for PK-12 schools.
Over the last three years, I have written over $11 million in successful state and federal proposals for charter schools and school districts. If you need grant writing assistance, SchoolGrants is the place to turn! Contact me for further details.

9-25-03 Whew! It has been a rocky month for SchoolGrants! The site has been down or only partially operative due to the host provider "upgrading" their services. Unfortunately, there were lots and lots of problems for customers that accompanied that transition. So, despite being a happy customer since 1999, I have now switched to a new provider who appears to be wonderful!

Thank you for your patience and for continuing to check back with SchoolGrants! I'm not planning on going anywhere anytime soon so if you encounter the site being gone in the future, it should be a temporary setback that will be corrected as soon as possible!
