Funding and grants for business
The federal and state governments and, in some cases, local councils provide business grants and funding programs from time to time. Few government grants apply to starting a business and they are competitive or only available for specific circumstances.
Find a business grant
Many grants and assistance relevant to your business are listed in the state government's search tool, GRANTassist.
GRANTassist lists both state and federal government grants and programs.
