Personalized Fund Searches
Locating potential funding sources for your projects is a time-consuming and often frustrating process. ORDE can assist you through our Personalized Fund Searching Service. After talking with you about your project, we will design and conduct a fund search. The outcome will be a Planning Document of sponsor profiles specific to your project/interests. This Planning Document will be helpful as you map out your sustainable funding strategy across the life of the project.
To initiate a personalized search, please contact Lynette Michael at 303-315-5822 or email@example.com.

National Health Council Second Chance Funding Opportunity
Have you been scored but not funded? The National Health Council (NHC) is offering a second chance for proposals that 1) have been submitted to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or voluntary health organizations, 2) were deemed worthy of funding but 3) did not make the paylines. NHC, with input from NIH, has launched the Health Research Funding Website, an online database service giving investigators the opportunity to post their scored but not funded biomedical proposals for consideration by NHC members. Who is the NHC? This organization represents a variety of voluntary health organizations (including Alzheimer's Association, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, Easter Seals, Epilepsy Foundation, March of Dimes, Prevent Blindness America, Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation and many more), other nonprofits with health care interests and industry partners (see NHC Membership Directory) who have joined NHC in their overall objective: "Providing a united voice for people with chronic diseases and disabilities." NHC's hope for this program is that it serves to expedite the funding process by providing a direct link to funders and helping investigators avoid duplication of effort. This service was recently outlined in Nexus Extramural, a publication of the NIH Office of Extramural Research. Repurpose your scored proposals at http://healthresearchfunding.org/.
Fund Search Databases
A variety of on-line fund search databases are available for your use, featuring both federal and private sponsors. See our resource, "Fund Searching Databases."
Most federal and private agencies now have a web presence. Please see our Federal, State and Private Agency Lists. You may also find ORDE’s resource titled “Major Funding Agency Links” helpful as it provides a listing of important agency links related to research funding opportunities.
