Every year, local, state and federal government agencies give out billions of dollars in grants to support community and social service programs. For profit business are generally not eligible to apply directly for these grants. These grants are typically awarded to governmental agencies, schools, colleges and universities, community-based organizations and coalitions. In order for a for-profit business to connect with these funds, it is necessary to form a partnership with an eligible entity. This is actually fairly common and can be a great avenue for a small business to expand its reach.
Examples of projects that would search for grants under this category include job training and distance learning projects, affordable housing initiatives and substance abuse prevention programs for adolescents, just to name a few.
Federal agencies that award community and social service grants are shown below.
