  • Lots of research. Be careful there are some company's that charge you for information. I have been trying to get one since April. One place wanted $400 but they were a money back guarantee. Well thats great but I don't have money which is why I need a grant duh!
    Here are a few i have been looking into, good luck!

  • In addition to the above, I would try www.score.org and the National Association of Women Business Owners.

  • Be careful and good luck. I hear they almost never come through and when they do it can take a very long time. My friend applied for one when her son was in technical school almost two years ago. Her lawyer said it was all legit and she should see the money. She has not heard anything or received anything to this day...
