Department of Commerce- Has 127 programs. This agency helps economic growth, free trade and does a little international outreach.
Department of Defense- Has 52 programs. This agency is all military and America’s largest employer. Plenty of business opportunities here. Plenty of research and development grants available. Very hard to navigate.
Department of Education –149 programs responsible for providing educational grants and setting standards. They are not only place to get college grants. Great place for investing for our future.
Department of Energy-25 programs dealing primarily with energy, research and development, energy efficiency and energy production.
Department of Health and Human Services- Has over 570 different programs. The great people who are responsible for grants.gov web site. When I started doing grants years ago there was no one to centralize federal grants agencies. They have done a great service but they still have a long way to go. They are responsible for wellness, disasters, health, families and children. They have educational, research, internships and financial aid.
Federal Grants seemed elusive when I started out. It seems to me that getting free grants was an impossible task. Where is help? We deserve help. It is my hope, to change this by creating this us government grants web site. Getting federal grants and help should not be a hard process. It should not be beyond reach of small business to train their employees and expand their business.
I am a college student and single parent who relies on federal grants every day. www.federal-grant-news.com is a free information site created for the millions of people like me. copyrighted March 2005
