Grant Stuff

....or, more sources than you ever wanted to have for grants, but here they are anyway

Grants are an essential resource for educational programs today.  Writing grants doesn't have to be for the professional only.   If you know there are things you want to accomplish, but are having difficulty because of inadequate technology, don't despair.  Grant-writing can be done by individuals, for themselves or for their whole school.  It's not easy ...or fun, but it is very possible. 

How do you find out where the grants are, though?   Here are some sites to help you out.   Notice some are struck through.  Hmmm, I wonder why.
