Disability.gov’s Guide to Federal Government Grants



What Are Federal Government Grants?
Federal government grants are a form of financial assistance from a federal agency that is awarded to an organization, a state or local government agency or an individual for a particular purpose (e.g., to help low-income students pay for college or a technical school). Grants are not loans, meaning they do not have to be paid back. Very often grants are awarded to fund research or programs related to education, community development, energy, science and technology.
There are very few federal government grants for individuals, and those that are available are awarded for very specific purposes, such as helping students pay for their college education or funding scientific research and development. For more information, read Federal Government Grants for Individuals.
Here are a few “quick links” to get you started:
For more information about federal government grants, see below.
Grants.gov has information about more than 1,000 grant programs that visitors can apply for grants on its website. The Grants.gov User Guide offers detailed instructions for every step of the federal government grant application process. Use the search tool to find grants by keyword, category and agency. You can also learn abouteligibility criteria, read answers to frequently asked questions and subscribe to receive email notificationsabout new grant opportunities.
There are also private and nonprofit organizations that can help you find grants from non-government sources. For example, the Foundation Center has information on more than 108,000 foundations, corporate donors and grantmaking public charities in the United States, including more than 3 million of their recent grants. The Center’sFoundation Directory subscription service is the most popular way to search the site’s database. The directory includes information about grants to individuals for many different kinds of support, including scholarships, fellowships, loans and internships; arts and cultural support; research and professional support; and general welfare and special needs.
Where Can I Get Help if I Am Low-Income?
Grants.gov does not give money to help people pay their bills. Federal government grants are not the same as benefits, such as Social Security disability benefits or those offered through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps. To find out which government benefits you may be eligible to receive, use the Benefit Finder on Benefits.gov.
For information about fixing credit problems or getting out of debt, visit USA.gov. You can also readDisability.gov’s Guide to Financial Help for Low-Income Individuals & Families to learn about federal and state assistance programs that may be able to help you pay for the necessities of life, such as prescription drugs, food and utility bills.
