Applying for Government Grants
Government grants are a better option to government loans. Government grants never have to be repaid, and nearly everyone who applies is granted a government grant. Applicants must demonstrate that they need the money and have accurately completed their application forms and provided supporting documentation. Government grants normally go to individuals for a specific purpose outlined in their applications.
The government grant application is the only part of the process that applicants must spend some time on. If the application is false or incomplete, this will negatively affect the chances of receiving money. Often, supporting documentation such as income statements or tax receipts need to be provided along with the government grant application.
|Millions of people apply each year for government grants, including|
|Housing grants||Personal grants|
|Education grants||Small business grants|
|Medical grants||Research grants|
Government grants are preferred over government loans, however if an applicant is denied a government loan (normally due to high income and not proving necessity) he or she could easily apply for and receive a government grant.
Government grants are distributed to schools, businesses, non-profit organizations, and individuals. Often, tiered funding for government grants are very large and can be negotiated at a policy level (such as major renovations to buildings or roads). Smaller grants, such as grants for individuals, can be negotiated at a municipal level.

Government grants allow for individuals to be publicly funded but with reasonable independence from the governing state.
