Find Grant Funding

HRSA fulfills its mission through grants and cooperative agreements.

A grant is money, property, or direct help we award to a qualified non-federal entity (NFE).

A cooperative agreement is like a grant in that we award money to NFEs. However, we also help with program activities.

Alert

We list Office for the Advancement of Telehealth (OAT), Office of Global Health (OGH), and Office of Intergovernmental and External Affairs (OIEA) funding opportunities under the Office of the Administrator.

Select Office of the Administrator in the Bureau/Office drop-down list.
