Grant opportunities to help unemployed workers avoid foreclosure‏

Dear Mr. Shaw:

Thank you for contacting Governor Charlie Crist. The Governor appreciates your request for information about grants and asked me to respond on his behalf.

The Governor’s office does not maintain information about available grants. There are several Web sites on the Internet that provide information about grants. Many people look to the government hoping to find out how to apply for a grant or to get “free money,” which they have seen advertised on television or in various publications. However, grants usually go to state and local governments or nonprofit organizations, which then use the money to operate assistance programs locally.

The Web site http://www.usa.gov has information about legitimate grant and loan opportunities.

Individuals looking for government grants and loans may wish to visit the Web site http://www.GovBenefits.gov, the official government benefits Web site, encompassing more than 400 federal and 600 state programs funded by various agencies. This site allows you to complete a confidential questionnaire and receive a list of programs that may apply to your situation.

States and organizations seeking grants may wish to visit http://www.grants.gov.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact Governor Crist. I hope this information is helpful.

Sincerely,
