CHAPTER 1
OVERVIEW
We read nearly every day about government spending, but many of us do not realize that we might be eligible to receive some
of the money the government gives away every year. There are thousands of grant programs for established businesses and newcomers.
Whether it=s to develop a unique invention, continue or change your career path through education, work at your artistic vocation or
simply obtaining help with living expenses, there are numerous sources out there for you to tap into.
But how to identify them? This is the bigger stumbling block to those that even think they might qualify for government
funds in some way. But the key to obtaining grant money is not a giant secret. Generally, if you are an organized, detail-oriented
person who can follow instructions, chances are you could qualify for a grant.
There is even a bimonthly magazine you can subscribe to called Humanities, which is published by the National Endowment
for the Humanities, 1100 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Room 410, Washington, D.C. 20506, phone number (202) 606-8443. This
publication features listings of recent grants by discipline, a calendar detailing application, grant deadlines and guide sections for those
who are thinking of applying for a National Endowment of the Humanities grant -- and there are many! This magazine can give you
tips to help you qualify!
Grant money can provide you with the independence you need to start your own business, expand or launch you on a new
career destination. These dollars can help you acquire schooling you=ve either lacked or need to change course.
All it takes is organizational skill, the ability to write a proper grant proposal and knowing who to write to for applications.
This booklet will be your guide and can improve your chances of securing grant money.
Let's start with the Government, there are federal level programs and state level programs. Federal Programs have billions of
dollars available for new businesses start-up, expansion, medical, personal, inventions, research, and pretty much anything you can
think of. The Federal Government resources are eminence not only for grants and loans, but for information. Example: If your business
is growing corn, you need specific things to make your business grow. For example, you may want to know about new technology on
seeding and fertilization. The Department
of Agriculture has experts on how to grow corn effectively.
If you want to expand your customer base, the Government does research on other parts of the country that consumes more
corn than others, where in the world corn is in demand, and where the shortages are. If you need legal help with exporting your product
overseas, you need to know the countries tariff's laws. And import restrictions. The government has the answers to these questions.
They are the ones that write the laws and know the laws of the other countries.
Virtually any type of information you need to get started with your project is available through the Federal Government
Private Foundation's on the other hand are organizations created by large Corporations, they assist
communities with funding for a wide variety of purposes. Their funding is limited to the guidelines outlined by the
Founder and the Grant Administrator.
How to start: Start by choosing one or several organizations from this guide and start making your
contacts. If you are not able to find a certain organization, go to your Public Library and take a look at the
Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance, this is basically a master index of all Government programs that
is updated every six months.
Secondly, Start making contacts by either calling or writing to them and asking for all the necessary information for the
agencies funding criteria. At first, please refrain from asking too many questions in your initial request. Keep your request only to
asking for applications and guidelines. Remember, if your contact tells you they cannot help you with your project, just ask if you can
be referred to an agency that can help. They may or may not know. Not every person knows what the government has to offer. In order
to establish the right contact it may take several phone calls or letters.
Remember don't burn any bridges on your pursuit, it may seem like your getting the run around, but the only way you can get
anywhere with the Government is to be friendly and offer a positive attitude to everyone you talk to.
Otherwise you may be dead in the water. After you have an established contact, ask them to send information regarding their guidelines
and applications for funding. Read them thoroughly to enforce any advantages you can use to further pursue your project.
When you find out that your project fits in their funding criteria, this is when you start on your proposal or letter of appeal,
submit letter to as many agencies you can find. Being accepted by several agencies is not a bad thing. Please use this directory as a
guideline. There will always be people and hurtles in your way. Please be patient, but persistent.
Congratulations, you have just taken the first step to obtaining the money to finance your dreams

HOW TO WRITE YOUR PROPOSAL
Writing a grant proposal can be as simple as following the directions in your application packet. Add a little flare and your
grant application can stand out, making your chances of selection better.
Every agency bestowing grants has different rules for application which is why reading the packet you receive thoroughly is
so important. The government is a stickler for details, so if you can=t follow directions or make just one small mistake, your
application will be disqualified.
There are reference sources in your library to consult about grant proposal writing in addition to the advice given here. It=s
best to read as much as you can in preparation for your grant writing duties.
If you are requesting a grant for a specific idea or project, contact the agency after you receive the packet to see if they have
recently awarded any grants for this type of work. If they have, it may be that no further grant money is available for that project. You
will then have to come up with another idea to obtain your dollars.
Whatever your idea, try to enlist written support from individuals in your community who may know you and like your idea.
Letters written by your local government, community and business leaders improves your chances of receiving the award. Federal
grant money may actually require these letters of endorsement. Your application packet will inform you of the specific requirements.
Even if not required, support letters are encouraged. It gives further credence to your idea and may make the difference if the
grant award comes down to a couple of applications and the agency is forced to choose.
If you have a partner or two who have a different expertise than you, add their names and qualifications to the overall
proposal. Having assistance on the project often encourages agencies who make grants available as the project=s chances of
completion are heightened.
Relating your idea(s) to the agency individual agents who will be considering your grant request is a sound move. Many of
these employees have been there a substantial length of time and will be well-versed in the ins and outs of obtaining grants. They often
appreciate that you asked their advice up front and can do wonders for you in terms of saving time and effort.
You could make it convenient, if it=s a local agency you can make a personal visit to that agency to meet the individuals who
will be considering your proposal. There may be pertinent reference information in the agency which can help you with your proposal.
By all means, stay in contact with these people, especially if they work in the agency to whom you will be submitting your
bid(s). Even if you don=t get a positive response on the first grant proposal, keep in touch! They can often tip you off to what future
projects have a chance of being funded. If it=s in your area of expertise, you have an inside track to the next funds availability.
You will likely not be the only one writing for grant money, so you have to do a better job of it than your competitor. By
making sure that there is:
- a need for your idea or project;
- sufficient research done on your part to satisfy the grantors;
- no question that you are the best candidate to receive the grant;
- time for you to spend reviewing the application process and preparing your grant proposal;
Then you will be ready to write your first proposal draft

GRANT REQUEST
There are two documents you need when requesting a grant, The Grant Proposal and The Letter Of Appeal.
Some Foundations would rather work with an organization than with an individual. If this is the case, you would greatly increase your
chances of getting a grant, if you create a non-profit organization.
First file a certificate for a non-profit organization with the Secretary of State. Next, file an application with the IRS and Treasury
Department. For detailed information on steps to creating a non-profit, we recommend this publication: HOW TO FORM A NONPROFIT CORPORATION - BERKELEY, CA. NOLO PRESS.
Here are the essential parts of a grant proposal:
1. Summary. This generally outlines the proposed idea or project and is naturally slotted for the opening paragraph. Keep it
both brief and interesting. It will be the first impression the grantor(s) will have of you and your abilities, so work hard on this part of
the document. Poorly written, this opener could end your chances immediately. Conversely, well-written beginnings are encouraging
to the reader(s) and improve on your chances. Be sure only your key points are in this portion. Don=t oversell it with too much detail.
Make this part easy to read, but informative.
2. About You (and your Business). The next section summarizes your qualifications and those of any others that will be
working with you. You may want to include up to date biographies of all involved. Let the grantor(s) know about your recent work
and success, especially if you=ve been successful with any other grant program.
3. Problem Statement. This is where you summarize the need for this project or idea. You will need to note your idea=s
purpose, who will benefit, how they will benefit, what social-economic area will be affected, hard data supporting the nature of the
problem, what is currently being done (or not done) about the problem, what will happen if your idea is not funded and implemented
and how you intend to solve the problem. This may be the longest part of your proposal. Get any supporting documents you need from
local community and government organizations. Be sure you can defend all your thoughts contained in this section. It=s the what,
why and how of the grant proposal.
4. Objectives. These are the actual means by which you will solve the problem you outlined in step #3. Outline them in
detail, provide cost analyses of each to support your funding request and lay them out in logical, sequential order. The agency will
periodically review the progress of your project or idea once the grant is given and it will likely be these actual objective points that
will be used to measure your work.
5. Detailed Objectives. While step #4 provided a summary of your objectives, all of the activities relating to accomplishing
these objectives will be laid out in detail here. This could include dates, resources needed, staff needed, progress checkpoints, relevant
diagrams, charts or drawings and all relevant detail. Highlight any innovative work that will be used to help accomplish your
objectives. Provide any reference material necessary to back up your details.
6. Evaluation. Here, you will need to identify the results that will come from the project. You briefly stated these in your
opening, but more specifics will be needed here. The only way to evaluate the project may be from seeing if it meets the results
expected. You are solving a problem, after all, so your results should be your solutions and their resulting benefits. Some agencies
have standard evaluation techniques, so be sure you reference those here if that is the case.
7. Future Funding. What will happen to the idea or project once finished? If it is self-completing, say so. If further
maintenance will have to be done to keep the problem at bay, record how this is to be funded. You might be able to arrange for local
support once the initial funding is depleted and the problem solved if it is something that requires ongoing work.
8. Budget. While it would be nice to see the grant money fund the full cost of your idea or project, current federal budget
cuts may not make that feasible. If you are securing other funding or have a plan for money to pick up the additional expenses of the
project, let the agency know that. Write out a detailed budget listing (and justifying) the assorted expenses. You may receive all of the
funding you need from the one grant, but
you really shouldn=t count on it. It=s often easier to secure government funding if you have also tapped into other sources to help
cover the costs, even if it=s a small investment on your (and, if applicable, your partners=) part.
While these are the key elements of a proposal you will write, get as much help as you need depending on the size of the
project. Obtain as much input from area experts as you need before writing the proposal. They might have excellent suggestions and
could play a role in helping you to complete the various activities associated with accomplishing your stated objectives. They might
even be helpful in writing certain aspects of the proposal, especially the details of the work and tasks necessary to meet your objectives.
Do a first draft. Then -- get feedback! Give it to people who have helped you, or whom you trust to be properly judgmental
about it. The best writing is done during the rewriting phase, so it=s important to have people take a critical look at your first draft.
You=re too close to be thoroughly objective. That=s O.K.! Just know that you should get others to help you analyze your initial work
in preparation for a second draft.
Go through the same process with your second draft. This should be shorter and less feedback should come in if you elicited
enough comments the first time around.
Make any changes necessary and get it to final draft form. Then have it proofread and bound into a booklet for submission
purposes. You=re ready to submit!
Remember that the grant should be written after you=ve obtained the agency=s application and grant guideline forms. There
are many places to contact for potential grant information, and your decision should be closely allied with your skills and interests. The
following list should help get you started isolating the agencies you fell are best possibilities for you.
FINDING A FUNDING RESOURCE
Top
Review your catalog program the Grant Agency sends you. Special emphasis should be placed on the Objective and Uses and Use
Restrictions sections of the Catalog. The description can tell you which programs might provide funding for an idea.. Do not overlook
the related programs as potential resources. Both the applicant and the grantor agency should have the same interests, intentions, and
needs if a proposal is to be considered an acceptable candidate for funding.
When a potential grantor agency is identified, call the contact telephone number identified in Information Contacts and ask for a
Agrant application [email protected] Get to know some of the grantor agency personnel. Ask for suggestions, criticisms, and advice about the
proposed projects. In some cases, the more the agency personnel know about the proposal, the better the chance of support and of an
eventual favorable decision. Sometimes it is useful to send the proposal summary to a specific agency official in a separate cover letter,
and ask for review and comment at the earliest possible convenience.
Always check with the Federal agency to determine it=s preference if this approach is under consideration. If the review is
unfavorable and differences cannot be resolved, ask the examining agency or the official to suggest another department or agency
which may be interested in the proposal. A personal visit to the agency=s regional office or headquarters is also important. A visit not
only establishes face-to-face contact, but also may bring out some essential details about the proposal or help secure literature and
references from the agency=s library.
Government agencies are required to report funding information as funds are approved, increased or decreased among projects
within a given State depending on the type of required reporting. Also, consider reviewing the Federal and State budgets for the
current and budget fiscal years to determine proposed dollars amounts for particular budget functions.
Study the eligibility requirements for each Federal or State Government program under consideration. The applicant may learn that
he or she is required to provide services otherwise unintended such as a service to particular client groups, or involvement of specific
institutions. It may necessitate the modifications of the original concept in order for the project to be eligible for funding. Questions
about eligibility should be discussed with the appropriate program officer.
Deadlines for submitting applications are often not negotiable. They are usually associated with strict timetables for agency review.
Some programs have more than one application deadline during the fiscal year. Applicants should plan proposal development around
the established deadlines.
PROPOSAL CHECKLIST
Top
1. Confirm that the foundation/government source is interested in receiving your proposal.
2. Have the people you plan to serve been involved in planning the project. The proposal
should reflect their involvement.
3. Does your proposal include information on other individuals or organizations working
with your project?
4. Have I followed my funding sources guidelines to the tee?
5. Have I outlined and highlighted innovative features of my project to set it apart from
others?
6. Has my draft been reviewed by a impartial party for clarity and understanding?
7. Have I accurately outlined my budget? Are all budget items complete and my math
correct?
8. Has my proposal been proof read and free of typos?
9. Have copies of my proposal been distributed to other project participants?
WHY PROPOSAL=S FAIL
1. The funding source did not request a proposal.
2. The project you proposed is not convincing or well documented.
3. Your proposal is poorly written, confusing or difficult to follow.
4. Your objectives are not within the interest of the funder.
5. Your proposal=s documentation is not convincing to funder=s interest.
6. Your goals and objectives appear to be unrealistic or overly ambitious.
7. Your budget is incomplete.
8. Your budget is to high for that particular funding agency.
9. Your proposal does not follow their guidelines.
10. There=s know indication that your project can be sustained beyond the funding period.

LETTER OF APPEAL
Top
A letter of appeal is a summary of a proposal. Generally, if a small amount of money under $2,500.00 is requested a letter of appeal
will usually be sufficient. For larger sums of money send both the proposal and letter of appeal.
Your letter of appeal should be brief and to the point, long and unorganized letters could get passed by. Your letter of appeal should
be composed in such a way as to grab the attention of the grantor. This will be your first impression, you should make it count.
The letter of appeal, outlines your program/project in a clear unambiguous and a concise way. The following should be included.
A. The Proposal
B. A Statement of the Need
C. Evidence of the Need
D. How The Need Will Be Met
E. Your Total Cost F. Amount Requested
G. Complete List Of Other Supporters and Proposed Supporters
H. Duration Of Program Or Project
I. Staff Capabilities
J. Future Funding
K. Description Of The Individual, Corporation Or Organization 1. How The Organization Began, 2. How Long Has It Existed,
3. Significant Accomplishments
4. Support Received From Other Organizations.
THE WIDE ASSORTMENT OF RESEARCH GRANTS
Top
Research opportunities exist in virtually every field imaginable. The proposal writing for this may not have to be as in-depth
as a field project, but significant information is necessary and it=s a good idea to follow your proposal format without regard to the type
of grant being sought. The more complete -- the better!

CHAPTER 2
FREE FEDERAL MONEY FOR BUSINESSES
Top
The Federal Government is the World=s Largest Source of free grant money, to help start or expand a business.
You may think, Why haven=t I heard about these free cash giveaways before?
The government does not really advertise the availability of grant programs to the public. Those who happen to
hear about the programs, find it difficult to locate the right office, cannot get all the necessary information, and find that
there are so many programs, that not even the government employees know the procedure=s to follow. For some, it
becomes a losing battle and they give up in total frustration.
Generally, people do not believe that government cash giveaway programs are for the average person, they also
tend to believe budget cut headlines, and thus fewer people attempt to get their share of available free grant money. Many
programs saw applications for grant money drop by 30 percent when, in fact, the amount of money available remained the
same or even increased.
Federal Information Centers Program (FIC) is a focal point for information about the Federal Government. The
FIC assists people who have questions about Federal services, programs, and regulations, but do not know where to turn
for an answer. FIC information specialists either answer an inquirer=s questions directly or perform the necessary research to
locate and refer the inquirer to the expert best able to help. There is a new toll-free telephone number, now
available for all states; 1-800-688-9889. Or write to the Federal Information Center, P.O. Box 600 Cumberland, MD
20501. TDD users may reach the FIC by dialing a toll-free number, 1-800-326-2996.

SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTERS

The following is a description of loan programs available to low and moderate income individuals, minorities, Native Americans, Hispanics, refugees,
unemployed individuals, welfare recipients, youths, and low and moderate income individuals who don't qualify for credit through conventional methods.
Most of these programs allow individuals (depending on the situation) to roll closing costs and fees into the amount of the loan. So you actually go to the
closing with NO money in your pocket. The aim of these programs is to stimulate economic growth through small businesses or microenterprises. Helping
individuals become self-sufficient is the main focus, and also to challenge conventional methods of providing credit. All of the programs hope to
demonstrate that persons with limited incomes are responsible, will repay, and can become successful if given access to knowledge and resources.
Some programs are designed just for youths, (15-21 years old), to develop their own businesses, avoid drugs and crime, sharpen academic skills and form
positive attitudes about themselves and their communities. This is accomplished by utilizing the leadership, communication, management and business
skills they may have acquired through affiliation with the illegal drug trade and other street activities. Loan amounts can range from $50 to $2,000 with
terms from six months to two years.

State Women Business Assistance Programs
Top
The feds aren't the only ones noticing the emerging importance of female entrepreneurship in the U.S. business economy. Many states now have special
programs to help new and expanding women-owned businesses get the special assistance they need to succeed. So far, almost half the states offer some
kind of assistance to women business owners, from special set-aside programs to help women compete for lucrative government contracts, to
nuts-and-bolts, one-on-one counseling, to special low interest loan programs, such as the ones offered by Iowa and Louisiana. It's important to keep in mind
that just because your state doesn't currently have any special programs for women entrepreneurs, that doesn't mean that they won't in the near future. In
fact, many states, like Florida and Utah, now have special women's business advocates in the state capital to help bring the needs of women business
owners to the attention of their legislators. We all know that many newly elected legislators happen to be women, too. This could mean new business
programs for women offered in the future, so keep in touch with your state capital to keep informed on the current status of these programs.
