Omaha grants for innovation, economic development, collaboration
Fantastic! I think you'll be able to find some useful information at the Omaha Public Library. Our most powerful tool for grantseekers is the Foundation Center - Foundation Directory Online database, which offers profiles of active foundations around the country and category/keyword searches for grants and grantmakers. This database is tremendously valuable, but it's expensive, so we're only able to offer access in-library at our W. Dale Clark library at 215 S 15 St. It's well worth the trip. If time permits, I'd encourage you to visit us on Wednesdays between 10am-2pm - we open a Career Center lab that's rarely crowded and can be a perfect space for grantseeking research.
There are many other information tools that will help to support your research. The librarian who works most closely with our grantseeking collection has developed a subject guide that should give you a better introduction than I can. We also have quite a few books in our library's print collection that may be useful.
Please feel free to follow up by email here or contact our business librarian, Anna Wilcoxon, and her support staff with additional questions by calling 402-444-4800. Thanks for your work in building up local entrepreneurs, and I hope that we can offer some free resources to help you build your funding base!
