How Uncle Sam is Helping Americans with Government Federal Grants
Americans are still feeling the sting of recession and the loss of over 600,000 American jobs in 2009, and that's a situation that's going to most likely get worse before it gets better. In the meantime, families and businesses are slowly sinking farther and farther into debt. The good news is, Uncle Sam has finally figured it out, and you may be eligible to receive government federal grants to help settle your personal or business debt.
Government Grants for College
You're not going to get anywhere in today's society if you don't have some form of college education. With tuition rising and financial aid stretched too thin, however, paying for that college education is easier said than done! If you don't have tens of thousands of dollars just lying around (hundreds of thousands if you've got your heart set on the Ivy League) you're going to end up having to take out a numerous student loans just to get the education you need to have the future you deserve.
There are several federal education grants available to students (the Pell Grant, for example) that will hand you the money you need to go to school in the expectation that you're going to become a functional, contributing member of society. Make sure you talk to your financial aid advisor about government school grants before you register for classes! Click the following link to find out more about student college grants .
Small Business Government Grants
Our country was built on the foundation of the independent entrepreneurial spirit, and many economists speculate that it's entrepreneurs that are going to pull us out of the economic slump we're in right now. It's hard to be an entrepreneur when you don't have enough money to start a business or the credit you need to pick up a small business loan. That's where grants fall
Government federal grants are readily available through the SBA
(Small Business Administration) for small businesses who meet their minimum size requirements:
- 500 employees for most manufacturing and mining industries
- 100 employees for all wholesale trade industries
- $6 million for most retail and service industries
- $28.5 million for most general & heavy construction industries
- $12 million for all special trade contractors
- $0.75 million for most agricultural industries
(information found at grants.gov)
Businesses who don't meet these minimum requirements may still qualify for government federal grants (or even government state grants) and may also be eligible for financial assistance through certain organizations in the private sector. If you’re trying to get going there you have come to the right place.

Ladies, there's never been a better time to be a woman in the work force than right now! There are over 1,000 small business women grants available for those in a broad range of industries, and less than 10% of women who qualify for these grants ever apply. Federal grants for women are actually far easier to qualify for men. It is a known fact that women are under represented in many walks of life such as the universities and within the business community despite that reality that women account for more than fifty one percent of the population. The United States government recognizes the potential in women, whether they are single mother, career woman or women heading their own businesses. To start without the necessary information and resources at your fingertips can be a great disadvantage. Women, find out more about grants for single moms also.
