This map depicts the headquarter locations of DOL grantees. To note, grantees often operate nationally in multiple states, so the total number of grantees listed by state may be smaller than the overall number of grantees currently in that state or providing services. This map is routinely updated to reflect currently active grantees. For questions or corrections, please reach out to ogm@dol.gov.

Search Tips

  • Keyword Search – Use the keyword search field to type your own search terms.
  • Who can Apply - For more information on grant eligibility, please go to Grant Eligibility | GRANTS.GOV.
  • Agency - The Department of Labor Sub-Agency that administer this grant.
  • If you are searching using an acronym, try a second search with the acronym spelled out. For example, if you are searching for resources related to the Davis-Bacon Act, try searching "Davis-Bacon Act" as well as "DBA".
  • For more specific results, use quotation marks around phrases.
  • For more general results, remove quotation marks to search for each word individually. For example, minimum wage will return all documents that have either the word minimum or the word wage in the description, while “minimum wage” will limit results to those containing that phrase.
