3 Easy Ways to Find Out if Your Small Business Qualifies for a Grant

by on June 12, 2017 in Funding Tips

So you’re a hardworking, level-minded business professional with grand plans for your future business endeavors, but you’re a little short on funds. Sound familiar? If so, this article may be able to help find a grant that can keep your small business plan on track.

While there are a lot of different ways of earning and/or finding funding for your small business, some are easier than others. Building your own business is an arduous enough task without complicating it unnecessarily. Finding grant funding sources can certainly be easier than finding some others.

 

Why a Grant

Grants are a very, very simple answer to your business funding conundrum. Grants are available for a variety of business types, models, locations, niches, goal and mission orientation, etc… The chances are fairly good that your small business qualifies for at least one government-funded grants. Sometimes businesses qualify for more than one.

That’s right- government funded. Meaning you don’t have to pay the money back. As long as the funds are appropriately handled and utilized for the specified business objectives.

 

The 3 Easiest Ways to Find Out if You Qualify for Grant Funding

There are a few different avenues that you can explore when it comes to searching for government grants for your business. The first stop on the list, however, is, of course, the Small Business Administration site, or local office. Their office can even provide assistance with looking through available grants and finding those that you are qualified for.

The second place that any savvy small business owner should check is the government organization site, www.grants.gov. This is a resource that is 100% dedicated to helping people like you find funding for their businesses.

Last but not least by any means, you should look into grants that are run specifically by your State or County. There are many programs that are dedicated to serving their local areas specifically. Particularly in communities that are experiencing economic struggle due to a lack of viable business and diversity.
