- Over $30 billion dollars in free grants and low interest loans;
- Over one-half trillion dollars in procurement contracts;
- Over $32 billion dollars in FREE consulting and research grants.
With an economy that remains unpredictable, and a need for even greater economic development on all fronts, the federal government is more willing than ever before to give you the money you need to own your own business and become your own boss!
In spite of the perception that people should not look to the government for help, the great government give-away programs have remained so incredibility huge if each of the approximately 8 million businesses applied for an equal share, they would each receive over $70,000. How would you use $70,000 for your business?
Most people never apply for a FREE GRANT because they somehow feel it isn't for them, there's too much red-tape, or simply don't know who to contact. The fact is however, that people from all walks of life do receive FREE GRANT MONEY and other benefits from the government, and you should also.
