Quickly Find Grants Online That Apply To Your Disability
The most challenging grant writing task is to find grants online. But there's a way to make it easier. Happily, there are no cumbersome government sites that you have to struggle to make sense of.
The two key steps in getting a grant are:
- Search until you find a grant that matches your situation (what this page is all about).
- Apply to the agency in question (covered by the Writing Grant Proposals page).
First, let's be clear about one thing. You CANNOT find so-called "debt relief grants" because they just don't exist. If there were such grants, too many people would spend recklessly and then ask the government to clear their debts for them. It makes no sense at all.
So what if you can't get money to pay your debts? Simple! Just get what you're entitled to for other reasons. Remember, every year there are billions of dollars of grant money going to millions of people!
If you don't ASK for your fair share, the money will go to others.
You CAN locate grants (or equivalent benefits) online for many things: education, repairs, trips, medications, counseling and so on.
So if you get a grant or benefit for something you're already spending money on, you can then use the saved money to pay down your debt.
That's how it works. And it DOES work.
But here's the thing. You need to know where to apply. That's what this page is all about... helping you find the granting agencies with the money!
Finding Government Grants Online
The feds give away a lot of money, but not directly to individuals!
The federal site, www.grants.gov, is considered THE authority on government grants.
But... to find grants online there, and especially grant money with your name on it, you'll need an extremely powerful magnifying glass!
Why? Because grants.gov is a site describing federal programs, most of which are not accessible to individuals. The feds give money to the states (and others) who, in turn, do the bulk of the grant-giving.
It's a great resource though if you just want to learn something about government grants, without any commercial hype. Please be sure to visit www.grants.gov for basic information about grants.
One of the surprising things you'll discover when visiting grants.gov is that there's no handy list that you as an individual can use to find grants online.
But a great online search alternative exists! And it's not Google or Bing! It's the Information USA database of grant programs that are available in the United States.
Ability-Mission's Coggan with Matthew Lesko at a grant seminar in 2003.
Information USA is a private company that belongs to Matthew Lesko. You've probably heard of him. He's famous for his polka-dot suits and cars, and his loud preaching about all the free government money available.
Behind that noisy exterior though is a man who sincerely wants to help people access money that is basically there for the taking.
Lesko's database is a compilation of grant programs that used to be listed in the many books he published starting in the '80s.
The online database is so much better, because it's always up to date, making it super easy to find grants online. Books have out of date information the moment they hit the bookshelves.
Lesko calls his grant database "The Government Money Club." It's a playful name, toying with the idea of accessing government money through privileged club membership.
The "Club" offers well priced options to meet a variety of needs. Read on to see if this is really for you.
How To REALLY Find Grants Online
The REAL solution to locate grant programs online is Lesko's database. It's truly geared to the needs of the individual by a man who's been in the grant writing business since the early '80s.
Matthew Lesko is widely known as the "The Free Money Guru Of Government Giveaways." Here are some facts about him:
- In over 25 years of experience, he's educated Fortune 500 companies and average taxpayers about government money programs.
- His writings on the subject include 100+ books, as well as syndicated columns for The New York Times and Good Housekeeping Magazine.
- Two of his books have been on the New York Times Best Seller Lists. Two have received awards from the American Library Association.
- He's been a regular on hundreds of TV talk shows including Larry King, The Today Show, Jay Leno's Tonight Show, Letterman and Oprah.
With his online database, you can quickly and easily find grants online. You can put questions to the Lesko live librarian, download actual approved applications and view informative videos designed to give you the right information to succeed.
