Government Grants

The federal government is one of the best sources for those seeking grant funding. A federal grant is an award of financial assistance from a federal agency to a recipient to carry out a public purpose of support or stimulation authorized by a law of the United States.

There are many groups of organizations that are eligible to apply for government grants. Typically, most grantee organizations fall into the following categories.

  • Government Organizations / Education Organizations
  • Public Housing Organizations
  • Non-Profit Organizations
  • For-Profit Organizations
  • Small Businesses
  • Individuals

Most of the titles included are produced by the U.S. government, however there are Ohio state resources as well.
