Thank you for contacting my office for assistance with a federal grant. I have made it a priority to increase the grants awarded to agencies, municipalities, and non-profit organizations in my district.

The federal grants process can be confusing to navigate. It is my privilege to provide you with a variety of services to assist you locating federal grant funds. This guide was designed to help answer some of your questions and serve as a resource in the application process.

In addition, I have established the Federal Grants Notification System, which provides constituents with regular updates about new federal grant opportunities. To sign up for the Grants Notification System, click here.

If you have any questions about grants, feel free to contact my District Office at 407-615-8889.

My office can help local businesses, organizations, and groups in the 9th Congressional District identify and apply for federal grants.

If you are seeking a letter of support for your grant application, please use the guidelines below to help expedite your request, or print the PDF here.

  • Submit your request at least two weeks prior to the due date.
  • Include the full name of the grant for which you are applying.
  • Provide the names and physical addresses of the agencies, and contact person(s) the letter of support should be addressed to.
  • Include your organization’s complete physical mailing address and telephone number. Please note: letters cannot be sent by overnight service to post office boxes.
  • Summarize your organization, its services, and how the grant money would be used in a 2-3 page letter. Alternatively, you can provide a copy of the project abstract.
