Finding grants to start a private, nonprofit school

Some folks in a small town dear to my heart are hoping to start a private, non-profit elementary school. I've offered to help out finding grants. But it's... confusing.

After a few hours of aimless googling, it appears that most grants out there want you to apply with a specific project -- say, asking for funding for a robotics club, or something -- and that they don't so much like providing start-up funding for actually getting a school off the ground. Is this actually the case? Are there any broad-based grants for getting a school up and running? The school will be bilingual (English/Spanish), if that helps at all. Point me in the right direction, if there is one!
