I need your suggestions.

http://www.grants.gov/

or

http://www.hud.gov/grants/index.cfm


That is the Unites States site - start there.

I hope you have experience writing a Grant and understand how the funding works. And that its called 'Soft Money'.

If you have never worked with grants and have no knowledge about Grant Writing - you need to rethink you plan of how to support yourself.
