Abstract: The paper compares public and private sources of funding and lists the advantages and disadvantages of each. There are directions on how to organize a search for potential Federal funding sources and the kinds of information needed, including: data on where to get and how to read the Federal Register; sources of information on public funding; major justice funding sources; and an article about the Urban Community Service Program. General characteristics of four types of foundations are described, together with the kinds of information needed on private foundations and sources of information on private foundations, corporations, and associations. A section on grantsmanship includes a model and a timetable for proposal development; major components in a proposal to foundations and corporations, and to State and Federal agencies; examples of sources of information for idea refinement, sources of statistical data; and procedural suggestions.
