 by: Neal Brown

According to a U.S. government website, there are $400 billion in grants currently available in over 1000 different programs. Naturally with such a huge amount finding a program that you or your company might qualify for is a huge task.

This article will present some resources and strategies to locate and apply for grant programs that you may be qualified for.
