US government grants being centralized will really help all of us that are confused. Finding federal grants and getting our free grants should not have to be so hard. Sounds simple doesn't it?
We have least amount of time for federal searches. We have least amount of resources to hire a grant writer.
We need one stop shopping. We now have this with grants.gov! Yea. Its about time. But, as a beginner just try and find federal grants or receive your free grants through them. What a nightmare!
If you have ever visited this official us government grants site you know that it is discouraging. Finding federal grants for beginners and receiving free grants from them is very difficult. Do they speak English? I said I want a grant!
Soon all of us beginners are going to have no choice. We are going to have to go through this official federal grants site to receive our free grants. Anyone have an aspirin? Well it is time to learn how to speak like bureaucrats. If Fed X, and all these large corporations are receiving federal grants then, where are mine?
We will start off with first eight us government grants agencies.
Agency for international development-9 programs. The agency responsible for helping people overseas. Gives humanitarian aid to underdeveloped countries.
Corporation for National Service-created in 1993 to help those who provide community based service groups. Like Americorps and VISTA. Great John F. Kennedy stuff.
Department of Agriculture- They have 314 programs available. This is where I have always gotten my funding from. They are great for housing help. Small business help and community development.
