What You Need To Know About Grants.Gov


Have you been looking for grants lately? Have you been seeking financial assistance from the government? If you've answered yes to both questions, then here are the most important things you need to know first before you move forward with your search.

First up, it is very much essential for grant seekers to know the difference between a grant and loan. A loan is something that you need to pay back, and often with interest, while a grant is something that is given to you in order to help you carry out a public purpose of support that is authorized by a law of the United States. Thus, a grant is something that you won't ever have to repay.
