Grants and Farms...

A lot has been discussed on this blog about grants and starting a business.  But what about the businesses that have already been running for a while?  They are also eligible for some government grants as well.

The problem is that a lot of people seem to think that grants are only available to non-profits.  While there are more grant programs for non-profits, there are still grant programs available for businesses that are for-profit.    Some for-profit businesses have managed to tap that fine line of qualifying for a grant.

A grant of more than $500,000 was given to two farms in the NY area.  The purpose of the grant was to help the farms move to a more economical way of using electricity by using cow manure (that's right I said cow manure) as an electricity source.
