Find Grants For Your Nonprofit

Looking for grant opportunities? The NonProfit Times is pleased to announce a new addition to our site: The NPT Grant Finder. This new feature allows our readers to browse the latest grants from around the web. We will be adding more in the coming weeks and months.

Here's how it works: There are a number of different grant categories available (i.e. "Conference Funding"). Grants that match those categories will be posted within those categories, with links to the application at the end of each description. From there, you can decide whether or not your nonprofit would be a good match. Here's one of the many grants we already have available:


Type of Grant: Health, HIV Research
Grant Name: Advancing Exceptional Research on HIV/AIDS
Agency(s): National Institutes on Health and National Institute on Drug Abuse
Closing Date for Applications: Dec. 17, 2012


The National Institutes on Health along with the National Institute on Drug Abuse is seeking grant proposals for a research project on HIV/AIDS and drug abuse. Applicants must have an exceptional track record of conducting groundbreaking, innovative, and/or unconventional investigations on this subject. Examples of a successful application would be a study using populations with significant numbers of drug users; samples from drug using populations; model systems, including in vitro systems and animal models, to test effects of drugs of abuse on pathogenesis, progression, treatment; and developing interventions or treatments that are tailored to drug using populations.

This award will complement NIDA’s Avant-Garde Program (, which supports individuals who conduct high-risk, high-reward research. In contrast with that program, this grant opportunity requires applicants do submit a detailed research plan and preliminary data.

Eligible Organizations:
  • Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education
  • Nonprofits that do not have a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education
  • Private institutions of higher education
  • For profit organizations other than small businesses
  • Small businesses
The NIDA intends to fund an estimate of 2-3 proposals for a total of $1.5 million for Fiscal Year 2013. The maximum period for the proposal is five years, and should be determined by the scope of the project. You can find out more at:
