Government Grant Programs To Help Pay Off Your Debt
Grant Programs To Help Pay Off Your Credit Card Debt
Are there any government grant programs to help pay off a person's debt? Well I saw an online article that said that there were indeed government grant programs out there to help pay off a person's debt - including help to pay off one's credit card debt.
The article went on to say that all you had to do to find these government grant programs was to go to our government's official website where you could go through the list of the currently available government grant programs to find the current government grant programs that will help you pay off your credit card (and other) debt.
I have been to the official government grant website
many, many times and I have still not yet found such a government grant program specifically for those that want to pay off their credit card debt.
So, Are there any government grant programs to help pay off credit card (and other) debts? The answer is MAYBE!
While I have not found any government grant programs (yet) to help one pay off their credit card debt, I HAVE found grant programs where you can use the grant money to help pay your bills! For instance:
- there is a grant program to help one start their own business. One of the requirements is that you have to be a minority and you also have to submit a business plan in order to be eligible to apply. What is the grant award for this grant program? $20,000! And since this grant is for you to help start your own business some of this grant money can be used to help pay some of your bills.
- Did you know that there is a grant program that awards over $250,000 in grant money and you can use that grant money for anything you want! and that includes paying your bills, buying a car, etc. All you have to do is to be eligible to apply for this grant and meet their eligibility requirements. However please bear in mind that this is NOT a government grant program. This is a grant program that is being provided by a foundation that is in the United States but is not part of the government. You can find out more information about this particular grant program by clicking here.
So, are there are government grant programs to help pay off credit card debt? I haven't found any government grant programs (yet) that do this but I have found other grant programs where you can use your grant money to pay off your bills. These are not government grant programs but they are grant programs that are being offered by other organizations outside of the government grant programs.
