I would like to find absolutly free government grant information so I can start my own business. Every site I have found has a fee involved. If I wanted to pay for the info I would go to a bookstore. Any information would be much appreciated.

What you fail to realize here is that finding the information about grant programs - especially the ones that one may specifically qualify for - takes work - a lot of it - and attention to detail.
Would you say this very same thing about the people that do income taxes for a living? They should just do people's income taxes for free - yet and still the income tax preparers have bills and families to care for too......
You should also address your "reasoning" to the grantwritiers and other grant researchers out there too and see what kind of response that you get.
Lastly, one of the biggest arguments about government grants, grants and the grant process in general is that this information is available free to the public but it seems that the "public" is having a hard time trying to find the information. The problem with THAT is that just because this information is hard to find doesn't mean that it isn't out there - its just hard to find!
I do this for a living and I know enough about it to know that there are grant programs out there for people that want to start their own business - depending on the kind of business that they want to start. If you haven't found the information about these grant programs and whether or not you are eligible to apply for them then you just have to keep looking because the information (and the grant programs) are out there.
If you are going to whine and complain - well let's just see how far that gets you.....
As one of those sites that "charge a fee" I have to tell you that the most simplest answer to your question would be for you just to go to the government's website and find the information on your own.
But you have to understand that its not only the government that has grant programs. There are a lot of grant programs from foundations and other organizations too.
I sent a client over 10 pages worth of grant program information about grant programs that her for-profit daycare is eligible to apply for - 10 pages worth of information that took me 30 days to accumulate - THAT is why a fee is charged!
You can find out more basic information about grants and the grant process in general by going to my blog about grant basics
I am a single parent and full time employee who is attending college part-time. I am interested in obtaining a free government housing grant so i can buy a home for my family. Many of the sites feature grant for groups and organisation please provide free direct access to grant information.Open to suggestions Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
For school money-start at the local college finical aid office. You dont have to enroll at that particular school but they can get you started. FASFA is the first grant i was told i had to apply for (it is on-line)https://fafsa.ed.gov/i ndex.htm It is free. There are links that will charge you...this one is free. From there if you are approved they will tell you what else you qualify for--some finical aid offices are smarter than others so you may have to push. Also work force comission has a program WIA. They will assist you with training programs and paying for them.
