Finding grant funding for research is one of the biggest challenges social work faculty and research administrators often face. While few research funding resources are specifically targeted only to social workers, there are many funding sources that are available and of which social work faculty should be aware. This “how to” chapter specifically provides information as well as many electronic links to information on funding opportunities. A number of potential funders are described and highlighted including: National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Substance Abuse and Mental health Services Administration, Administration for Children and Families, Department of Veterans Affairs, Office of Violence Against Women, and the Department of Education. In addition to the focus on potential federal funders, attention is given to foundation funders including the Hartford Foundation W. T. Grant Foundation, and the Robert Wood John Foundation among many others.
