Funding Opportunities

Grants.gov is the website used by federal agencies to announce and process grant opportunities. Grant announcements for new NOAA programs and any program $100 million or greater are published in the Federal Register and posted on Grants.gov. Announcements for continuing grant programs and any amendments are posted on Grants.gov and are not published in the Federal Register. To find grants from the NOAA Office for Coastal Management, select "Find Grant Opportunities" on the Grant.gov site. Then, perform a "Basic Search" using the office's Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number: 11.473.
