Small Business Grants

Small businesses benefit greatly from grants as they are similar to free money in that they don’t have to be repaid. Generally, grants don’t require payback from the recipient which is a distinctive difference between grants and other funding such as loans. New entrepreneurs and small businesses have several available sources for grants. Private enterprises benefit greatly from these sources as well.

There is no availability of grant funding from the federal government for small enterprises. However, there are available options from the local and state sector. These grants come in the form of financial aid programs that may be applied for through beginning with the development of economics in your state. This is an updated listing of local and abroad agencies as well that supply funding.

Many people aren’t aware that the U.S. government offers special funding for small businesses that are qualified. These type grants are available for businesses that target the development of green products or research for health related industries. There are a series of generalized search options available for federal monies through U. S. government websites.

Small businesses require a significant financial investment and the funds aren’t always available at the start of the business. Therefore, many new business owners seek options of obtaining additional funding from sources that won’t require an immediate repayment or when possible any repayment at all. Grants are an ideal solution.

Make grant finding an active part of your business start-up plan. Set aside a certain amount of time each day to research grants that cater to your industry of business. Apply for every possible option and be certain to seek expert advice on your grant proposal. Agencies that issue these grants strongly considering offering grants to those businesses who submitted validated applications and proposals and correctly entered all requested information.

It is imperative that upon receipt of any type of grant, that the funds are used for the purpose of which it was granted. Reflection of positive growth due to the funds obtained in the grant can likely help the business to qualify for other funding in the future. Small businesses that utilize grant funding are afforded opportunities to expand or repair their businesses whenever needed.

  9. Good day

    I am from Durban in South Africa . I would like to start an Aquaculture and Aquaponics business.
    Please let me know if you provide grants to oustide countries for the industry mentioned.
    I have tried obtaining grants/funding/loans from South African banks but to no avail as the business has to be established
    for them to give loans.
    Fish farming is practised extensively in other parts of the world eg. China and Egypt but not in South Africa.
    My market research shows that it would help sustain the lower income groups as well as creating employment opportunities.
    I will appreciate any help or info on how to access grants or where to obtain them from.

    Thanking You

  25. I found this platform I hope it is the right platform. I am a Zambian from the Southern part of the country, Choma to be specific. I am having a project proposal in farming, that is cattle, pig and goat raring, I had started a pig project but my capacity couldn\’t sustain them in terms of feed and other facilities. However, in my proposal I have planned to own milling machines, cooking oil machine to serve a purpose of providing feed from the waste that remains after processing, also to secure the animals by wire fencing an area of about 10 hectors, I know and believe that once the project starts it will provide an opportunity to other youths and the people in the community to better living standards. Also sinking a borehole for safe water to the community as it depends on water from the stream which is not safe for health.
    It will be of great joy to see this project come to effective operation, the finances is the major challenge as at now because the NPV is positive & it will run for as long as people to manage it are there which is one of the objective to impart knowledge in many.

  26. hello ,have found this platform effective and through your aid,poverty,diseases and Un-employment can be eradicated,,i have a project to start up farming both livestock and crops but all these calls for capital to facilitate all these,kindly your consideration will be highly appreciated,,thank you

  27. Do you support projects from Ghana, Africa.I need a specific definite answer, because all the write-ups and adverts that I have seen on this \’Grants\’ thing have not spelt this out. I think it should be spelt out so that people from Africa do not put their hopes on this source of funding.
