Sewell offers latest edition of her guide to grants


U.S. Rep. Terri A. Sewell, D-Selma, announced that her office has released its latest “Guide to Grants” newsletter. The federal government awards billions of dollars in grants to grow the economy, improve infrastructure, and do various other things. Sewell’s office helps her 7th Congressional District constituents understand how the grant process works.

“I am honored to represent the 7th Congressional District of Alabama,” Sewell said. “One of the most important responsibilities as your representative is to provide you with information about funding opportunities. Now more than ever, grant opportunities are vital to the success of our local governments, organizations and other entities.”

“This weekly guide will identify federal and foundation grant opportunities to assist you in goals for our communities,” Sewell said. “This Guide will include links to grant writing resources to help you make your proposals more successful. This Guide will also describe new funding opportunities for economic development, infrastructure, healthcare and educational projects as example. In addition, I am pleased to provide a Letter of Support for grant application projects in the 7th Congressional District of Alabama. Please let us know when grants are awarded, especially if you found the opportunities in the Guide to Grants. “
