How is your funding going. I am helping elderly and their animals on NE arizona, so far no donations or cantacts have been made to my paypal account healinghandsministry@rocketmail.com  Easy to do just sign into pay pal and donate what you wish even if it is only a few dollars it always helps...

Good Luck on your mission... Is your school in the USA or in Pakistan?

Somebody please help!!!! I am a Wisconsinite whom has been given a gov’t loan to attend A GOVERNMENT approved pharmacy school in Australia. After graduating, and returning to the US to be with family the National Pharmacy Board will not let me practice in the USA. I owe the US over $90,000.00 for a degree in which I am unable 2 use here, despite the US funding it. I have met the requirements to practice in the US, but the National Board of Pharmacy is a non-gov’t agency, very successfully keeping me out of the business. Where can I go for help? If you know please let me know, I have been working on this for over 1 yr.

 

Thank You!

Jenn there is no place that I have heard of that is a walk in grants giver. Everyone has the idea that all you have to do is sign some papers and you'll get a grant. It doesn't work that way. Do you know anything about business plans?

There are two programs that are FREE, Grantgate and The Federal Money Retriever the rest are basically legal scams that plays on our emotionals amd they tell you just enough to get your hopes up .....and send them money you don't have and that makes them worst that other merchants.

The addresses of the two are http://www.grantgate.com/  and http://www.thefederalmoneyretriever.com/  on one of them it tell you what all is needed for a grant to be processed.

See what you think of them, as far as some of the everyday things you can go to my blog http://schmidty.aidpage.com/ and look around. I'm sure you can find something to help.

Good Luck and God Bless

What kind of business do you want to start?  You must be specific before you can even begin.  Also, can you provide the things that are needed in your community?  Look around you.  You will see something that your neighbors need. or that the community you live in need.  The next question you need to ask yourself, " What does the government require( tax ID, etc.) 

I would like to start a business too, but I wont attempt it until I know what the government expects of an entreprenuer. 

Just dont expect a hand out from grants, and dont give grant funding programs any money in hopes of getting some back.

Keep the faith.  You will make it financially, and under your own steam.

@Celina

Hello, my name is Celina and I am looking for some type of help the government gives to students who have good grades and would like to have a career. I have heard before, many times, that you do not have to repay the government for this money they give you. I am very interested to know if it is true and also where to go to apply for that help. If any of you know anything concerning this matter, please let me know. It will be highly appreciated!!!

I am getting a mayor in web graphic design and this coming semester will be my 2nd. year of school.

 

Thanks in advace,

Celina Martinez.

My daughter will be starting her junior year at Howard University.  We are a working family, my husband lost his job at his warehouse and we still qualify for nothing as far as financial aid goes.  They have denied us for loans.  We've applied for scholarships to no avail.  Can anyone point us to any funding sources?  We have to pay 4500 for tuition this semester and we still need books and meal plans.  If anyone has suggestions, we'd greatly appreciate it!

Fisher-

I'm guessing you are using a library computer, so you should be able to print on a limited basis (especially if you tell them it is resources for shelters and help for the homeless).

The City of Lawerence has a website section devoted to the homeless listing agencies and their hours of operation right in your city. My suggestion is you systematically work through the list. Get yourself to the employment office and file for unemployement, get yourself to the foodstamp office and file for emergency food stamps, and find the housing office and get on the list for section 8. If you are former military the VA will allow you to bunk over night. In the day time find a mall that you can sit in to get out of the heat. Many people do this. You can also hang in the library and read.

Just note that places that offer a place to sleep will have check in times, and you'll want to be there early to gain a spot to sleep. If you can get emergency food stamps though, you may actually qualify for cash assistance which could help you to gain a place through the housing commision.

I'd also start looking at regular jobs. See if the local Wal-mart is hiring greeters. It's better than no job at all.

As far as grant programs for your business goes you have to realize that even though these kinds of grants are considered "free" money you do have to kind of give back something in return.  You just can't get a government grant to use any way you want.  Is your business providing something useful to the community?  Have you considered becoming a sub-contractor for the government - in other words - the government will be (one of) your client(s) - yes there are government workers who buy handbags!  the fact that you have an "eco-friendly" line is good because there is a big push relating to going "green".  You also posted that you have created your own line and if you use certain kinds of workers then you might even be able to get a grant that way!

One example of a website that received a grant (not necessarily a government grant) to actually start a website was a company that got grant money to create a website to show historic places in one particular area.

Is the $50K funding that you are asking for is it for your bag business or for the shelter that you are wanting to start?  I ask because most people that start a shelter start small and then build upon that.  And the fact that you don't specifically state what you want the $50K for begs me to ask the question.
