Government grant programs
What are some government grant programs?
Visit these sites to learn more about some available government grants:
1. Department of Education Grants (www.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocfo/grants/grants.html)
2. The Environmental Protection Agency grants (www.eba.gov/ebtpages/envigrants.html)
3. Federal Emergency Management Agency (www.fema.gov)
4. HUD Community Development Block Grants (www.hud.gov)
5. National Institutes of Health (http://grants1.nib.gov/grants/oer.htm)
Good preparation, thoughtful planning, and concise packaging is essential to apply successful for a government grant.
But, before you spend too much time applying for a grant, ask the successful business owners you know how many they've received. If you have a traditional small business, with traditional customers, products and competitors, seeking a grant will not contribute to helping you survive in the global marketplace.
