CAIED Grant Alert Subscription
Now Available for $400 per Year
Our main objective at Northern Arizona University (NAU) Center
for American Indian Economic Development (CAIED) Grant Alert is
to make life a lot easier for those who devote their time to
searching for Tribal grants and identifying new funding
opportunities for their Tribe or Tribal organization.
Soon to enter its third year of operation, CAIEDís Grant Alert is
the only grant search service in the Country specializing in grants
which benefit Tribes and tribal organizations.
CAIED uses only the most up-to-date, comprehensive private, federal
and University grant search engines and techniques available.
CAIED researches multiple sources, including direct contact with
Federal and other funding agency grant Program Managers, to deepen
the level of detail in their grant opportunity analysis.
CAIEDís methods ensure confidence that you will always receive
listings and descriptions of potential funding opportunities
guaranteed to fund Tribal projects.
In addition to the timeliest announcement of Federal grants, the
CAIED Grant Alert features:
Foundation grant offerings
Grant support resources
Grant related news

Grant Flash Alerts Ė immediate email notification of grants with
short deadlines; webcast/conference call grant trainings and
discussions, and modification notices of previously announced
Each grant listing contains all the pertinent information regarding
each grant offering and a URL link to the full announcement. The
CAIED Grant Alert will save you hours per week in grant research and
analysis. Each CAIED Grant Alert will be emailed every two
weeks to your tribally designated recipients. For $400 per
year (just $33.33 per month) you will receive 24 issues of the most
up-to-date listing available of federal and foundation grants for
which tribes and tribal organizations are eligible.

Alert is an invaluable service that saves both time and money. With
nearly every issue, Grant Alert recipients have found grant
announcements that they were unable to locate themselves! Why
pay your staff to research grants when their time could be better
spent writing grants?
