How does D3 Volleyball Recruit Gauge Scholarship Possibilities?

Question: Sorry about the long winded question…..

My daughter has received a lot of DIII interest from schools for volleyball, and we are trying to better understand the recruiting process. We understand that there are no athletic scholarships, but that there are potential grants available. If true, when is it appropriate to inquire about the availability of grant money for athletes at a school? Does the coach or the admissions office best answer that? Also, when in the process can an inquiry be truly/honestly answered and be more binding in nature? In other words, does my daughter need to apply to all DIII schools she is potentially interested in playing for and also submit a FAFSA in order to for us to truly understand how much of her education would be covered under aids, grants, etc.?
