Research Resource: California Grants Portal Launches Online From the California State Library
The California State Library has launched a one-stop portal for all grant and loan opportunities offered on a competitive or first-come basis by California state agencies and departments. The Grant Information Act of 2018 – AB 2252 created the California Grants Portal, which features more than 126 grants totaling over $18.3 billion in potential funding.
According to State Librarian Greg Lucas, the grant and loan opportunities exist to help California communities and innovators succeed. “The easier we make it to find the right funding, the faster Californians can start putting it to good use,” he said.
Subscriptions and updates on new grant opportunities for over a dozen categories are also available. There is also a feed on the page that lists recently added grants, as well as a statistical tracker named “By the Numbers” that tracks how many grants were added in the past week, the total number of grant opportunities and the total amount of funding available.
