Grant Center

Welcome to the 2024 Grant Center!

The Santa Barbara Grant Center was created through a partnership between NPRN and The Write Team. The Grant Center is a resource to help you effectively manage your grants program. We offer a centralized location that has most everything you need to know about the most prominent funders in Santa Barbara. Our tracking tool, database, and grant writer directory help grant writers do their jobs more easily!

Please note: The Funder Database no longer has grant deadlines within the funder profiles. Deadlines can now ONLY be found on the grants tracker. Downloadable templates can now be found in the Google Drive funder folders; links to folders can be found on the tracker and in each funder profile on the database. (Note that not all funders will have downloadable information available.) 

If you have any questions, corrections, or information to share, please email


Our downloadable grant tracking tool has information for the most prominent local funders. The completely customizable tracker includes deadlines, contact information, website links, and more.


Our database includes funder guidelines, up-to-date funder news, and examples of organizations supported by each funder.


Our Grant Writer Directory includes a list of local Santa Barbara grant writers with contact information and noted specialty areas. If you, or someone you know, is a local grant writer and would like to be included on the list, please email
