Government grants available to help out small businesses like yours are widely available and offer support for many, many different types of businesses. There are over 60 departments in the federal government that offer government grants, and you may be eligible for one or more of these awards, depending on your type of business and the intended purpose for the grant money. Grants offered may be for a one-time award or a renewable fund, depending on the criteria and the financial requirements of that department. Grants could be a subsidy for property or some tax benefit, in addition to a sum of money allocated to your business.
