kikiminx started this conversation

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.

that guy on the commercials with the question marks on his coat says you can get free money to move. i cant find anything on the internet that pertains to it. maybe i should have bought his book. maybe with all the books out on it these days our illustrious government has hidden the info better .

I would like to get a free grant that will help me economically. My husband and I live on social security and a small federal pension of less than $10,000 a year. We have not had a cost of living raise for 2 years and the medicines that we have to buy are expensive. I have rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes. I am 63 years old and my husband is 72 years old. He has a aortic walve replacement.I have a wheelchair but it does not fit into the old car we have. To walk I need a walker. Inside my house the entrance and the rest of my house is too narrow so that I can get by in the wheelchair. I need economic help to get by. Where can I apply? My husband and I are both United States citizens.

 in response to Roseb441702...   I've been looking for a grant also. I found some places that want to charge a fee, I don't think that's right. Maybe we'll find some real help soon. I'm Praying on it.

 in response to PrettyAbby...   Although I have seen a few programs that call themselves "grant" programs I don't consider them grant programs because you have to pay a fee for them. If you want to be sure about who it is that you are dealing with then you should check them out online. I have investigated quite a few bad companies all because they appeared in the headlines and I wanted to find out more about them.

As far as government grant programs are concerned you don't have to pay for them.

 in response to hempstead51...   Number 1 - if you are looking for grant programs to help you start your own business then the best place to go would be your nearest large library. You have to remember that government grant programs have to be made freely and publicly accessible to the public (since these grant programs are paid for with taxpayer money). So that means that information about their grant programs are provided free of charge in both printed form and online access. Have you been to the official government grant website yet? They do not charge you there for the information about their grant programs. If you don't know the website address just do a quick Google search and you should find it easily.

 in response to moola...   I know the feeling. The sad thing is is that I m paying 223.00 a month since Feb of 2010 and I still have to do the legwork. You would think that with tha kind of money going out that I would have grants coming out of my rear, but its sd to say that I have not found a single 1 and they are not any help. The only reason Im still paying is so that it wont hurt my credit if I stop paying.

As someone that does grant research for a living I have to tell you that you have to start doing the work and start to research this information in order to find it.  That is why other sites charge you for this information because they have already done the work for you.

Realize that information about government grants has to be made accessible to the public because it is taxpayer money which is paying / funding these grants - what this means is that you should be able to find the information about the government grants online or at a public library.

Also realize too that not all grant programs are by the government.  There are other grant programs available to individuals from non-government entities as well.

Either you do the work yourself or find someone who will be able to help you find the information on your terms.  In the beginning there is a lot of hard work involved in finding these grant programs but it gets easier the longer you do it.
