Grants, Grants, Grants

Happy Wednesday, and yep, I will re-iterate it is already almost the weekend. So, over the past couple of months. I have been paying close attention to government entities on the local, state, and federal levels. In addition, I have come across a couple of foundation grant opportunities which are less red tap. Please see the two foundation grants below:
