Are government grants really free?

Are they really "free"? Or do you get taxed for them at tax season, and then get hit with large taxes that you can't pay because you used the money you received to pay down personal debt? So I guess I' m trying to ask if it's worth checking out? And if it's really free, then why aren't more people taking advantage of them? Do they just say that they're free and then bash you over the head with fines and whatever else they can throw at you to try to get some of the "free" money back?
