Home-based business grants

Question
Where can I get a grant to start my home-based business? 
Answer
The only realistic answer is "you can't." Yes, we all hear or see ads for free money to start a business. But the only people making any money are those selling you the book or packet of vague information on grants.

Grant funding is designed more for the academic world to develop new technology or a medical breakthrough that can then be transferred to a commercial application.

If you're looking for a grant because you want free money, then that's the wrong attitude to have in starting a business.
