Helping Families. Supporting Communities. Empowering Individuals.

Welcome to the section of the IDHS website where providers will find information about grants for human services. There are two sub-sections.

The Grants Alert System (GAS) provides information about grants that are available from external sources such as the federal government, foundations and corporations. This section also contains an abundance of materials about grant writing, training opportunities for grant writing, and how to get added to the ListServe, to be notified of funding opportunities.

Grants from IDHS provides information about grants provided through IDHS and the State of Illinois. These grants may be competitive and non-competitive grants. They may be totally federally funded, from federal pass-through funds, or full or partially State funded grants. This section also includes information about requirements related to the federal uniform guidance 2 CFR 200 and Illinois' Grant Accountability and Transparence Act (GATA), which adopts the federal guidance for state grants.
