Grant To Help Bipolar Disorder Disabled Vet Build Business And Erase Debt

by Michael Cannon
(Fountain, Colorado, USA)

I am a 56-year-old currently married father of two sons and three grandkids.

I was born in New York and raised in Georgia and I now live in Colorado.

I served in the US Army. Being in the military gave me the opportunity to see the world.

Disability Issues

My disability is bipolar disorder. This disability affects me in many ways:

- It limits me in fully understanding detailed instructions.
- It makes me think that people have something against me and are trying to keep me down.
- It stops me from making the right decisions on life matters and job situations.
- It stops me from socializing with others and pulls away from them.

Financial Hardship

Not being able to work makes my home life difficult because of the bills that I cannot pay.

Not being able to pay the utilities (around $4000) and having the house going into foreclosure have made me feel like I am a failure

It's hard for me to keep gas in the car and to pay bills because I spend money and don't know where I spend it and I have nothing to show for the money that I have spent.

Income Efforts

I have attempted to improve my finances through online blogs. I also try to do work at home doing online surveys.

All my attempts have been to no avail because of my disability.

Specific Needs

I seek grants to catch up on past due bills so I can get a new start on life.

Because grants do not have to be repaid, this would give me the opportunity to pay off bills that caused by my disability.

A grant would also help me to acquire a motor vehicle that I can use to get around with more efficiently.

Business Idea

I am looking for a grant to finance a security monitoring company. I have put together a device that will let you be aware of all who are around you when you get home.

This would give the police a jump on crimes before they happen. This device will one day be able to locate missing and exploited kids and return them home before any harm can come to them.
