-Many people are under the false impression that the Small Business Administration awards lots of grants to small businesses. This is not the case, but there are still business grants to be found. The SBA does not award any grants for businesses. Its  website states: "Please note that SBA does not offer grants to start or expand small businesses. Those grant programs that SBA does offer are primarily designed to expand and enhance organizations that provide small business management, technical, or financial assistance.”+Many people are under the false impression that the Small Business Administration awards lots of grants to small businesses. This is not the case, but there are still business grants to be found. The SBA does not directly award any grants for businesses.
-Note that the SBA does support other organizations which provide assistance to small businesses in the form of technical and managment advice and counsel as well as financial assistance. Those applicants most likely to win such grants are generally those in specific groups such as minorities, women, veterans and people with disabilities. there are also grants designed specifically for individuals or organizations with special expertise and experience, particularly qualified to conduct special research or other projects requiring specific skills. Sometimes grants are targeted at defined geographic areas, and at those who require support other than financial. So it is important to carefully review eligibility requirements when looking for a business grant. And of course if you are a part of one of the groups listed above, you would be wise to explore grants that may be open to you. The SBA as well as grants.gov are good places to start.+SBA does support organizations which help small businesses in other ways, including financial support.
