The Grant Resource Center at Northern Essex Community College
The Grant Resource Center at NECC offers access to The Foundation Center’s “Foundation Directory Online” database, as well as the “Grant Makers Directory“ of Associated Grant Makers. The center also has a limited number of books and other resources available to help grant-seekers successfully locate funding sources.
As space and access at the center is limited, please call ahead (978-738-7400) so that we can reserve a place for you to work. Once you arrive and sign in, a librarian will assign you to a computer and log you into either or both of the databases. If you are unfamiliar with the resources, you may schedule an appointment with one of the professional librarians who will spend 15-30 minutes introducing you to the databases and other resources that are available. Printing is available at the center at a cost of 10¢ per page, payable by cash or check.
The center does not offer assistance with grantwriting or grant administration. We only provide access to the information.
NECC does offer several grantwriting workshops throughout the year.
For information about these workshops, or to register for them, please contact Associate Dean Dawna Perez, at 978-738-7605.
