About Government Grants

Small Business Administration


There are no grants for starting up new  businesses. However, the SBA offers a limited number of grant programs for small business technical assistance. For more information, see 13 CFR 143, "Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Cooperative Agreements to State and Local Governments".


Other Federal Agencies

Other Federal Agencies have grant programs that support agency goals and objectives. Most are for state and local governments and non-profit organization. However, there are a few for small businesses that meet the eligibility requirements for the grant. For more information, go to The Federal Commons -- an Internet grants management portal serving the grantee organization community.
