One amazing resource to help you find grants
Do you work for a non-profit? Or maybe you’re a student, artist or researcher? If you’re looking for grants, we have a new resource at the Miami Township Branch Library that’s just for you!
How to access the Funding Information Network

- The Foundation Grants to Individuals Online is a database of programs that provide support for students, artists, researchers, and other individual grant seekers.
