IBTS provides grant support to help NFBPA members identify grant opportunities and provide the resources you need to write and optimize grant applications.
Through a partnership with the National Forum for Black Public Administrators (NFBPA), IBTS provides grant services to assist NFBPA member communities with federal, state, corporate and private foundation grants. Members can access a searchable grants database free of charge and additional grant support at discounted rates.
Our grant services help NFBPA members identify and carry out grant opportunities that improve the quality of life for their citizens by funding projects that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.
Grant Search Tool
NFBPA members can access a comprehensive grants database that connects your community with grant opportunities to fund the tools and projects needed to serve and protect your constituents. The tool is provided free of charge as a member benefit to NFBPA members through IBTS. Users can filter the database to find grant opportunities that match your needs.
