I need to find totally free government grant information

 in response to PrettyAbby...   Although I have seen a few programs that call themselves "grant" programs I don't consider them grant programs because you have to pay a fee for them. If you want to be sure about who it is that you are dealing with then you should check them out online. I have investigated quite a few bad companies all because they appeared in the headlines and I wanted to find out more about them.

As far as government grant programs are concerned you don't have to pay for them.

I need to find totally free government grant information

 in response to hempstead51...   Number 1 - if you are looking for grant programs to help you start your own business then the best place to go would be your nearest large library. You have to remember that government grant programs have to be made freely and publicly accessible to the public (since these grant programs are paid for with taxpayer money). So that means that information about their grant programs are provided free of charge in both printed form and online access. Have you been to the official government grant website yet? They do not charge you there for the information about their grant programs. If you don't know the website address just do a quick Google search and you should find it easily.

At least in my area once of the places that always seem to be hiring is my local supermarket - Pathmark, Shoprite, etc

Try to see if you can find some work that you can do from home - legitimate work

dental financial grants

 in response to Eliyahna333...   What I don't understand is the kind of dental service you are getting? My mother who was on SS got ALL of her dental work paid by her SS benefits.

dental financial grants

 in response to twiztid...   Have you tried your local social services / welfare office. They would best know of any grant-related programs and / or financial assistance programs that would be able to help you.

There are dental-related programs for those who are in the armed forces and I see from my own blog that there have been dental-related programs that pay for dental work being provided to people who have been the victims of emergencies like floods.

So there are these kind of programs out there - you just have to do the work to find them.

dental financial grants

 in response to zombiemom...   

Here is an excerpt from my grants blog:

Free Grants For Dental Care!

Many people are unaware of the services in their own home town. The ones that do know about it think it's only for helping handicapped citizens. Wrong. This program is in a position to help with free surgery, dental work and much, much more.


If you are employed, but a health problem may prevent you from continuing to work, your local office can help. Especially convenient for those who need a major operation, but have no insurance, This organization will pay for the doctors' visits, medication, actual surgery, recuperative equipment and physical therapy, as well as major dental work, too.

Please look in your area to see if you are eligible to apply for this program! 

 

So you see there are programs that exist that you may be eligible for BUT you are going to have to do the work and find the information so that you will be able to see if you are eligible to apply.  Either find the information yourself or find someone who will help you find the information on your terms.  It is just as simple as that.

I need to find totally free government grant information

 in response to Willett...   

As someone that does grant research for a living I have to tell you that you have to start doing the work and start to research this information in order to find it.  That is why other sites charge you for this information because they have already done the work for you.

Realize that information about government grants has to be made accessible to the public because it is taxpayer money which is paying / funding these grants - what this means is that you should be able to find the information about the government grants online or at a public library.

Also realize too that not all grant programs are by the government.  There are other grant programs available to individuals from non-government entities as well.

Either you do the work yourself or find someone who will be able to help you find the information on your terms.  In the beginning there is a lot of hard work involved in finding these grant programs but it gets easier the longer you do it.

"Ask Oprah And Ye Shall Receive"

 in response to wildergirl...   

I have explained about this confusion before.  I made a blog post about people writing and asking Oprah for money but it now seems that people are mistaking my blog post for a blog post that was actually written by Oprah.

I also made a blog post about praying for a financial miracle which turns out to be a very popular blog post as well.

But when you see the Oprah blog post and all the comments that people have sent then you should clearly see that this is not Oprah's blog but just my own blog post about people asking Oprah for money.

It's really a terrible shame that Aidpage is getting rid of their share program. I was really sad to hear of this news.

"Ask Oprah And Ye Shall Receive"

 in response to Hopeful.....   This just seems to be a common misconception here. This is a blog post that I wrote about people asking Oprah for money. I'm not Oprah Winfrey and I just did a blog post about people asking her for money. It really is an ironic thing because I have a client who is looking for more grant money for her son's boarding school and did you know that there are actual sites online where you can ask for money?

Just do a little searching online and you should be able to find this information for yourself.

"Ask Oprah And Ye Shall Receive"

 in response to Rieley...   One of the things that you can do is check and see if there are any dentists who have grant or financial programs that you may be able to qualify for.

There are also some organizations that provide for dental / medical care things so I really think that you should check some of them out as well.

grants to build senior citizen housing

See the problem that I have with your post is that you want grant money/monies to start building everything from scratch. Do you have a building / site in mind or do you want to build one from the beginning?

Basically myself as a grantwriter I would ask you to tell your grantwriter to check her database of information - something which grantwriters have that they keep for their records.

free grant for personal needs that dont cost to get

 in response to HOUSEAVAILABLEFORFREE...   Getting grants for repairs needed in one's home is going to depend on what kinds of repairs you will need. I have a client now who will be getting some minor repairs done all because of a program that her local utility company has.

Why don't you look at your current utility company and see what programs they have available. There should also be a list of financial resources for those who are considered seniors. I have such literature for PA and there are a lot of resources there for seniors both financially and otherwise.

Aidpage Open Letter: DO YOU HAVE FOOD TO EAT?

Well this is a very interesting and well-deserved post. I have been reading online about how the people that do qualify for food stamps can't even get in touch with the offices! And I still do have this "pet-peeve" about the President giving monies to the big industries and not to the people. He wouldn't even improve a moratorium to stop foreclosures. Although in my own area - Phila - it was found that the sheriff office was so corrupt that they stopped all of the foreclosures!

It's terrible when people can't even afford to buy their own medicine

personal grant to pay bills

 in response to ann55...   You should start at your nearest social services offices. There will be programs like food stamps that will at least help pay for your food. For bills such as heating, if you are considered low-incomed enough then you may be able to get a grant to help you with that.

As far as grants go for paying credit card debts, personally I have not yet found a grant program that deals specifically with providing grant money to help pay off credit card debt(s).

personal grant to pay bills

 in response to BECKE...   If you are looking for a grant to start a childcare facility then one of the place that you should first check would be your own state's website. They should have a list ing of available grant and funding programs. There are also some private organizations that have grant programs relating to this so you should do some checking online for them. If you are a minority then you have yet MORE funding programs available that you may be eligible to apply for.

As far as buying a home you might want to check with some realtors because since they get a commission then I think that they would be a good source of information regarding grants and funding programs for first-time buyers.

"Ask Oprah And Ye Shall Receive"

 in response to GOODDADNOW...   

One of my most popular blog posts is "Are You Praying For A Financial Miracle"  Basically what it says is that you just can't wait around for something to happen - You have to DO something - don't wait for opportunities to come to you - you go out and get them.  If you can't find a job then MAKE one!

"Ask Oprah And Ye Shall Receive"

 in response to dreamer45...   First of all I am learning to believe that almost everyone has a talent, skill or passion and I believe that you are no exception. If you have health problems then find some sort of work that you would be able to do from home.

If you can be classified as low-incomed then you should go to your closest welfare office and see if there are grant programs that you may be eligible to apply for - including food stamps.

I just can't say enough about having the opportunity to be able to be online and being able to have access to the Internet because so many people have been able to earn an income because of it. I was just talking to a neighbor yesterday who was telling me about a newstory about single mothers who work at home - a lot of them have started blogs and have started to earn an income from that.

I really do believe that you have more options available to you than you know!
