I have listed Free Grant Finders for the USA and related Grant information. In addition there are some for Canada, and then some for Europe and the UK. Also some Worldwide listings such as Google Adwords Grant and International Grant Finders.

Grants can help with specific types of, Housing,  Small Businesses, Scholarships for College, Education and Non Profits, to name of few of the many purposes they serve. There are basically none for Personal uses, outside of those I have mentioned as far as I know.  Go to my Crowdfunding page if you need money for those reasons or for a personal cause. Reason being is that even for most endorsed or approved purposes it is hard to get a grant,  even if you have the right paper work in order and the right niche. If you do apply do not be surprised or discouraged if you are turned down. Try to find low cost ways to start up, like starting a website or borrowing money. And too I listed on the Crowdfunding page some really good lending sources. Most small business are funded through business related or other types of loans, if alternative funds are needed to do business.

The short of this page is for Totally Free Grant finding search and results, which is all I have listed on the page, try BusinessUSA  which lists Local and then Federal Grants or, which most likely lists all Federal Grants that  there are. Good luck in your pursuit of financing for your business.
