I am trying to start a non profit business called a Adult Family Home. It’s a facility where you care for four or less persons in your home. You care for older adults or someone with a disability have my certifications, program statement, EIN, name and business proposal. Now I just need the funding to complete the deal and find a place of residence for the home. Please lead me in the right direction. Thank you.
Your best bet is to seek for private grants or grants from private foundations.
The best resource for this is Foundation Center http://www.fdncenter.org . They have a very good database covering all organizations giving grants and you can find foundations that are interested in supporting your type of cause. However, it’s a subscription based website ($19.95 per month I think is the cheapest subscription price). But it certainly is worth the fee. You can subscribe one month, and make sure you get all the info you need and then stop the subscription.
If you want to try federal sources, you can go to the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) http://www.cfda.gov and Grants.gov http://www.grants.gov – these are two sites created by the federal government to provide transparency and information on grants.
CFDA has several ways to search for grants. I suggest you search by beneficiary and select Private Non Profit Organization and you can find listings of grants available http://126.96.36.199/pls/portal30/CATALOG.BROWSE_BENEF_RPT.show
However, to be able to get grant awards, you need to be 501C(3) certified from the IRS http://www.irs.gov/charities/charitable/index.html
