mom-and-dad-looking-at-laptop-672597-mIn today’s age of specializing to target audiences, here’s a new twist. We recently came across a new grants and resources website offered under the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. The site aims to provide tools and resources to inform AAPI community-based organizations about federal opportunities.

The website is divided into three main sections:

  • Grants — offers tools to help organizations navigate Grants.gov and the grant application process;
  • Training —provides learning opportunities offered by federal agencies to help organizations obtain and use their resources; and
  • Resources — provides tools to help AAPI organizations assess community needs and conduct evaluations.

The White House notes that the AAPI is not involved with the decisions made by the organizations issuing the grant, nor does an organization’s use of the website guarantee that an application will be approved.

Among some of the upcoming opportunities on the website include:

Having a one-stop shop for this particular sector could prove very useful down the road. It will be interesting to see how this site evolves.

Let us know your reaction to the White House site and if it is of any use to your organization.
