Prospect Research & Grantseeking Resources

We search, analyze, and compile child health funding opportunities for you. We have several products that can help save organizations time and money in their efforts to identify funding opportunities specific to children’s health and pediatric research. NOTE: The children’s health grant seeking resources service (i.e., weekly Children’s Health Funding Bulletin and monthly GrantEngine) has been discontinued. 

Children’s Health Funding Bulletin

A weekly document providing only the essential information (e.g., topic, title, deadline, and eligibility) you need to quickly identify and access funding opportunities that are right for your organization.

  • Direct links to current federal and foundation/private funding opportunities in the area of children’s health.
  • Direct links to current notices of importance to grant professionals.
  • 48 issues per year.
  • Available weekly.
  • Subscription options to suit your organization’s needs.


If you need funding to help support a particular program or project, such as an injury prevention program or child life services, you can rely on the monthly GrantEngine as a resource for finding a multitude of pre-screened topic-specific funding opportunities.

  • Analyses of foundation/private (and federal as applicable) funding opportunities in a specific interest area.

Program Development

Is your program grant ready?

Thinking about creating a program that will need to be grant funded? Need help developing a logic model? 

Have a program that is already in operation and need to apply for funding? To be able to prepare a competitive grant proposal, your organization and program have to be ‘grant ready.’ We can take you through an assessment to determine if your organization is ready to apply for program funding. The assessment process may identify gaps in information related to, for example, organizational culture, infrastructure, resources, and documentation. We can help you fill the gaps and strengthen your program so that you will be ready to submit a competitive grant proposal.
