My husband and I applied for grants to start a horse sanctuary but know one seems to be giving them out for horses. Does anyone know whom might? Thank you, Kim === ANS…WER This isn't much information to go on to really answer the question. But in general, in order to qualify for federal or grants from private foundations for something like a horse sanctuary, you will need to be recognized by the IRS as a tax exempt nonprofit organization, or a 501(c)(3) organization. This entails you creating a nonprofit organization per your state guidelines, registering that organization with the state, then submitting your bylaws, articles of incorporation, and application for 501(c)(3) status to the IRS for approval. After you are a a bona-fide tax exempt nonprofit, or public charity, then you can seek grants for whatever project or program you wish to go after. Now, federal grants tend not be for smaller type organizations doing something as specific as you are describing. They tend to be for projects and programs that address broad national issues or will contribute to larger national policy issues. You can search by keyword for federal grants on www.grants.gov. For small and new nonprofit organizations, your best bet is to go to community foundations and private foundations in your state, city, and local area. But even then, you will need to show that 1) there is a need for your program or project, 2) there is a gap of services and thus a need for your organization, 3) that you have a board of directors that have financially contributed to your organization and for the project in question, and 4) your organization is financially healthy enough to properly be good stewards of any grants given. So, you need to have successfully raised funds for your organization from your community and Board before approaching a foundation. You need to answer why is this project and your organization needed and are there any other organizations out there that is already doing what you want to do. Foundations hate duplicating services. Also remember that federal funding is on a reimbursement system. You don't get a check to put in the bank, so if you don't have funds or credit already, going after a federal grant won't help you much.

It must follow the standards set by the Federal Government. real answer: comply with federal restrictions on its use.
Federal grants do not have to be paid back, while loans do. This aid is taken from the federal general fund. The grants are given for a specific purpose, and recipients ar…e required to meet the restrictions of the funds.
If a state wishes to accept a federal grant-in-aid, it is required to comply with federal restrictions regarding its use. The money is to be used toward a specific project….
The Grants-in-aid program provides grants of federal money or other resources to states and/or their cities, counties, or other local units.
The system of federalism balances the power of states and the national government because it gives greater powers to the national government so that our nation did not turn ou…t as a confederacy but it also keeps certain reserved powers for the states that can be denied or taken away by the national government. Not to mention the fact that our states are involved in national politics as well as their own and thereby or national government cannot make all the decisions for the country and the states without our (the people) approval.

The three branches of government; Judicial, Legislative and Executive, respectively; each are given powers and limits by the Constitution that allow them to "check and bal…ance" the powers of the others. For example, laws originate in Congress (Legislative), must be passed or vetoed and subsequently passed with influence from the President (Executive) and are upheld and reviewed by the courts (Judicial).
States must contribute some of their own money, and they must obey rules set by Congress in order to receive these grants. For example, the federal government contributes 90 p…ercent of the money to build interstate highways, but states must comply with a list of regulations, such as the width of driving lanes and the quality of building materials.
