I'll let you decide! Do you consider the program mentioned below a legitimate grant program? Would you be interested in applying for this program? I only ask because when I see that a funding program requires an applicant to pay a fee - I really do not consider it a grant program!
A woman's non-profit, private organization has a funding program which gives business grants to women who have been dreaming of starting their own business! This funding program is also open to those women who have already started their own business but are seeking more funding to grow their business!
One of the past grant recipients won a $500 grant to start their own crafint business!
In order to apply you must:
- be a woman a U.S. resident over the age of 18
- have made at least a $15 donation/application fee to this organization
Each business grant is awarded on the quality of the business plan and application materials. Because the grants do not have to be repaid, your credit history is not taken into consideration.
The grants are awarded on the quality of your business plan, not your credit rating.
