Are There Any Grant Programs To Help Start A Business?

Are there any grant programs to help start a business? The answer (of course) is YES! But there is a "but" here. It will depend on the type of business that you want to start. I know of programs that award cash awards of $20,000 and over to people that want to start their own business. Most of these programs involve you submitting a business plan. You have to be serious about what you are doing and more importantly you have to show them that you are serious about what it is you want to do.

On my Daycare Basics 101 page I mention two programs that people can apply to if they want to start their own business.

You should also check your own state's website to see if they have any grant programs that will help you to start your business. There is even a program for veterans that want to start their own business.

Please take a look at my Grant Basics 101 page and look at the list of people that have actually received grants.
