Finding Federal Grants for Woman Owned Businesses

by: Michael Saunders

Grants are not Benefits or Entitlements. A Federal Grant is an award of financial assistance from a Federal agency to a recipient to carry out a public purpose of support or stimulation authorized by a law of the United States. Grants are not Federal assistance or loans to individuals.

Since 2002, the federal government has been developing and implementing as a collaborative cross-government program focused on streamlining grants management for the Federal grant community.

There are many U.S. government grants that are available today. American citizens are not just aware or familiar with it because there is not advertisement about it. This is probably because there are no funds allocated for such announcements.

One specific type of grant gives focus on women alone. This can be research about women, other women oriented projects or businesses. Obviously the main requirement is that your project must focus on women, women's needs (like health) or you the grantee, must be a woman.

To be able to acquire that grant you need to focus on several things, these are the following:

- Know the different types of grants given for women

- Choose which one fits your needs

- Look into also if you are eligible for that grant you fancy.

- Get the application form or what some call as the grants application kit

- Review the necessary details necessary for the application

- Don't rush. Your writing must be well-written and succinct.
