There is an organization that provides funding to competitive junior players aspiring to achieve national and/or international rankings. Funding will be based on the success level of the player in the previous year. Must be training and competing in tournaments year-round. Have a history of strong national tournament results.

The grant award is a maximum of $10,000!

For more information you can contact them either by phone or by email for more information.

What Should You Do If You Get A Shut-Off Notice?

What should you do if you receive a shut off notice? The first piece of advice that I can give to you would be for you to call your utility company and see if there is a way that you can make some kind of payment arrangement with them.

I know that in my own area the utility company will send you information about programs that they may have to help you with your utility bill(s). While this may not be considered as free money exactly, it is a way to be able to get your utility bill balance lowered.

You should also know that - at least in my area - the utility company has someone that they have to answer to and if you feel that you are not being treated fairly by your utility company then you can report them!

There are also grant programs out there that may be able to help you as well. Here is a link to a blog post from someone who managed to get 2 government grants to help get their heating turned back on!

There may also be an organization or charity that may be able to provide financial assistance to help you with your bills. I know of one local organization in my area that will provide a payment to your utility company to help you with your bill if you receive a shut off notice. All you have to do is send or fax them a copy of your shut off notice to prove that you really did get a shut-off notice.

I am also starting to notice that there are quite a few websites out there that will let you request money. Some of these sites require you to submit documentation as proof but I know of at least one website where you can request up to $1000 and sometimes even more if your reason is compelling enough. All you have to do is submit your request of how much money you would like to have and what you need that money for. As I stated in a previous here on this blog, I have seen people receive as much as $500!

*Another source of money that you may not be aware of is unclaimed money. You can find out more about unclaimed money by visiting my blog - The Unclaimed Money Blog.

Free Grants For Dental Care!

Many people are unaware of the services in their own home town. The ones that do know about it think it's only for helping handicapped citizens. Wrong. This program is in a position to help with free surgery, dental work and much, much more.

If you are employed, but a health problem may prevent you from continuing to work, your local office can help. Especially convenient for those who need a major operation, but have no insurance, This organization will pay for the doctors' visits, medication, actual surgery, recuperative equipment and physical therapy, as well as major dental work, too.

Please look in your area to see if you are eligible to apply for this program!
