Personal government grants – do they even exist?

Looking for personal government grants?

If you have been searching for an application to get personal government grants for individuals, you have reached the right place. Despite what you might have heard through the e-mails claiming you can get hold of thousands of personal grants for a small fee, getting grants for your personal expenses is just not possible because they are not given by the government – neither the federal government nor the state. The confusion and hyperbole in regards to these grants are created mainly because most sites in the Internet simply do not point out that such grants are not available. Instead, statements saying millions of grant money is going unclaimed and the likes are abound. The bright side is that some grants are given away to the qualifying applicants for helping with education and starting a business. As you may be aware, pell grants falls into the category of grants given for education purposes.

The resources you will ever need to find grants that you might qualify for:

1. http://grants.gov/

2. cfda.gov/

Apart from these two resources, there really is no need to go to any other web site to find information on government grants.

    Ask for help from those who experienced a similar situation. The situation is simple to banality, threw business partners, remained deeply in debt, filed a criminal case and shines for about 5 years in prison. In the end, I’m 40 years old, was left without family, the wife took her daughter and went to her parents, without homes, apartments pay their debts, and work. There was a terrible depression, which began to treat with vodka. Reached the pens, but there is a desire to return to normal society, to return the family. Who has the opportunity to help get on its feet. I would be grateful to everyone for any help.

    I am finding that I am going to be a single mother of Five very soon. My husband of 12 years is an alcoholic. And he has now chosen alcohol over his children and wife. I don’t know where to start. WE planned on me staying home and raising our children, but now I don’t know if I can. I don’t know what to do. I have been a stay at home mother for over 10 years. How can I just stop and have my two youngest children be raised in day care? If anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate it.

      Lanie, the daycare costs are so high that even with subsidized child care, you are going to have to pay a part of the expenses from your wallet. Is there family nearby? If yes, would they be able to look after the young kids while you go to work? Of course, you can pay them a price that is affordable to you. As for everything else you need help with, do call the local United way[211] and ask for an agency that will assist you. They will refer you to the right place and get you started on the right path. Remember that it is always gets better over time. Hang in there.
