Arlington, VA (07/23/19) – Thompson Grants, a division of CBIS, is pleased to announce that it has completed a significant expansion to its grant-finding database, GrantScape, by incorporating awards data from IRS Form 990 financial data sets and, the repository for all awards data for the federal government, under a unified taxonomy and structure. This process has added over 34 million award records and over 2 million unique recipients, representing $250 billion in private awards funding and $110 trillion in federal awards funding.

This new data, available now for direct data licensing, creates a powerful tool for those searching for new grants to better understand the grants landscape and their place in it. Rather than searching for grants opportunities that a user may be eligible for, querying the complete set of grants awards allows users to find lookalike recipients and navigate the grants landscape from a completely new perspective.

“This was a complex project and I’m proud of the work the team has done to bring this additional data into GrantScape. It reflects our commitment to providing insightful, actionable grants intelligence to the grants community. By making the grants awards dataset available to our licensing partners, we aim to serve this vital information to as many grant seekers as possible,” said Julie Rachlin, Managing Director of Thompson Grants.

Grants service providers and other organizations that have need for bulk access to grants data for their own use or for incorporation in their own platforms can receive this comprehensive dataset through API, flat file, or similar devices.
