New Funding & Grants
Updated: Mar 15, 2022
I often hear people complain that there is NO FUNDING for small business owners… I have to disagree with this statement. It’s just a process and takes some WORK…
Grants are only one source of financial assistance from the Federal Government. There are at least five other sources available for you:
If YOU don’t have the time to do the work… you MUST make time or hire someone… know it is a process and will NEVER be an overnight win for ANYONE.
You’ll probably apply for A LOT… you’ll likely get denied A LOT, but YOU STILL HAVE TO KEEP TRYING.
YES... it takes time researching, checking all qualifications, and drafting the responses for the grant. However, I recommend you keep searching… keep applying.. keep pushing… keep introducing your companies to STRANGERS trying to help companies like yours with funding!!! Just keep going…
Last year, Congress passed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), which resulted in the United States Treasury allocated more than $350 billion to state, regional, municipal, and Tribal governments. The ARPA infused local governments with one of the most significant injections of federal cash in U.S. history!
This year, I have shared some of the significant funding opportunities, including private and state funding. Most states and counties used this money to reinforce existing programs.
Below, please see a list of grants you can apply for right now!!! This week alone we were able to apply for 11 grants.
