What are grants?
Grants are a type of funding provided by the government and private entities that do not require a payback by the grant recipient. In seeking grant funding it is important to remember this type of capital is typically based on the goods or services providing a public benefit.
Government grant funding is an essential economic tool used to help financially support ideas, projects, and businesses that intend to create social and public value through the use of these dollars.
In private grant funding the intent for use of funds is at the sole discretion of the grant funder.
