The Children’s Bureau website has a section called Grants. Under Discretionary Grant Programs is a link to the Children’s Bureau Discretionary Grants Library. There you can either see all grant opportunities for a particular state, or enter keywords to view all possible opportunities that could apply to you.  You can also view all the discretionary grants awarded over the past year. These will give you a good idea if your program has a chance of being funded. The Children’s Bureau website has a section called Grants.

 +Sometimes grants for kids are available through local community agencies and foundations. For example, the Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) has a grants program specifically for creative learning projects for kids not only during the academic year but also during the summer. The “Summertime Kids” program offers grants of $1000 or less to local nonprofits which work with kids. They must officially be 501(c)(3)’s or a school or church.The “Learning LInks” program also offers grants for qualifying programs during the school year. If you’re in the Cincinnati area these programs are definitely worth looking into. If you’re not, try checking your state’s web site for any kid-related grants that may be available throughout the state, using funds called [[block_grants|block grants]] which states receive from the federal government.
**Loans For Kids**: That may sound odd, but the Farm Service Agency – which is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture – actually has quite an active program for “Youth Farmers and Ranchers”. They make financial loans to youths in rural areas who are participating in supervised programs with organizations like 4-H clubs, Future Farmers of America and others. You can read some interesting “success stories” on the Farm Service Agency website. Several of them involve loans of $4-5,000 for the purchase of cows and calves that the young people then care for and breed. They earn income from the sale of the offspring and hopefully make more than the amount of the loan, which they pay back. By successfully repaying the loan they can qualify for future loans as well. If you’re in a rural area and you or your child has any interest in farming or ranching this could be a great program for them. Also check out our article about [[grants_for_farms|Grants For Farms]] for more information about this program. **Loans For Kids**: That may sound odd, but the Farm Service Agency – which is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture – actually has quite an active program for “Youth Farmers and Ranchers”.
