Government Grants: How To Get Free Money
Goverment grants are a source of free money. Anyone thinking about going into business for themselves, or wanting to expand an existing business should rush for the "one-step-money-stop" where Free Money flows from the Federal Government.
It is absolutely incredible that people living right here in the United States of America wouldn't know that each year the world's largest source of free buiness help delivers: over $30 billion dollars in free grants and low interest loans, over one-half trillion dollars in procurement contracts, and over $32 billion dollars in Free consulting and research grants.
With an economy that remains unpredictable, and a need for even greater economic development on all fronts, the federal government is more willing than ever before to give you the money you need to own your own business and become your own boss! Most people never apply for a Free Grant because they somehow feel it isn't for them, there's too much red-tape, or simply don't know who to contact. The fact is however, that people from all walks of life do receive Free Grant Money and other benefits from government, and you should also. Here is a list of funding sources:
1. Federal register, write to the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402
2. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance, write to the U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402
3. Commerce Business Daily, write to the U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402
4. The Foundation Center, write to 888 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10019, they will provide you with a listing of philanthropic foundations.
As you contact different agencies for grant money, learn not to accept "no" as a final answer. There are so many new programs being offered each year that often an agency's own employees won't be aware that they are offering the one you are asking about. If being persistence doesn't help, get in touch with your Congressman and let them track down a program that meets your needs.
