Whether you are researching federal grants, seeking a letter of support, or interested in learning more about the federal grant process, my office is ready to assist you.

Federal grants are awarded on a competitive basis in support of certain goals authorized by Congress. Federal agencies and departments administer hundreds of grant programs; however, a substantial amount of federal grant funding is disbursed to state governments, funding grant programs at the state level. 

Please contact my Boston office at (617) 428-200 should you have questions or require assistance.


  • You can also search for more federal assistance programs in the Assistance Listings at SAM.gov. The Assistance Listings page includes federal grant and loan programs as well as business and nonfinancial assistance programs. For further information about a specific program, contact the federal office provided in that program's description.

Note: The Congressional Research Service offers an overview of the federal grant application process in a report called Resources for Grantseekers.
