This is way overdue, but I just got to it.  

A while ago I asked about grants for women returning to science and many 
of you gave me answers.  I finally got around to following up those 
answers.  I called the number that follows and was told that the next 
grant period information was not quite ready and they put me on their 
mailing list.  I asked about returning to the lab as a postdoc, I'll have 
to wait to see what they send me.

Lots of information on grants, some especially for women. I don't know of 
a government program -- you might check out the American Association of 
University Women Educational Foundation at 1111 16th St., NW, Washington, 
DC 20036, 319-337-1716.

Here's something else I found:

Bunting Institute of Radcliffe College
34 Concord Avenue
Cambridge, MA  02138
(617) 495-8212

Science Scholars Fellowship Program

Purpose of program:  To support women scientists at any level in their 
careers in the fields of science.  (I'm not including all the fields 
mentioned but there are many.)

This is for the post-doc level.  

I doubt that either of these are strictly for women returning to the lab 
after raising a family.  I know this specific grant existed at some point,
 but it may have been discontinued as have many funding opportunities 
these days.
