Which Grant? Which Program? How do I apply?

The first thing that you are going to have to do is to find the funding programs. I do this for a living and I can tell you that there is no "one place to apply for all grants" to go to. For instance if you are a minority and want to start a business of your own you could apply for a $50,000 grant HOWEVER it is not as simple as just applying because you will have to meet their requirements and guidelines. There is a $500,000 grant program for entrepreneurs as well. So you see you will first have to find the organizations that are offering funding(s) for what it is you want to do. Once you find them then you can find out more about the kind of grant programs they are offering and what requirements and guidelines you will have to follow in order to apply for the funding(s).
