How long will it take for me to receive assistance from the government?

Assistance can arrive in a few weeks to a year. Remember, that some programs have application deadlines, so if you miss it, you’ll have to wait until the following year to apply. The delay depends on the program(s) that you apply for. The sooner you apply, the sooner you can be accepted and start to receive funding! 

How many grants can I apply for? 
There is no limit to the number of grants that you can apply for. You should apply to as many programs as possible. This way you will maximize your chances of being accepted by at least one program, and possibly more. We can help you decide which programs you are most qualified for. 

How much does it cost to apply? Is there a credit requirement? 
Applying for grants is free! We encourage applying as often and to as many programs as possible. Your credit worthiness is not an issue for many programs. In fact many programs exist specifically for those with little to no credit. Government funding is often an alternative to conventional financing. You can even have bad credit or a bankruptcy and still be eligible for many programs.  

How old do I have to be to apply for a grant? 
You are never to old to apply for a grant. Some programs require a minimum or maximum age, but most programs are administered on the basis of other criteria. All of our resources clearly indicate
