of money available to give out grants for individuals in need who just fill out a simple application, that’s not the way it works. Grants are typically awarded to organizations and to other government agencies; individual financial assistance is typically handled through [[Federal Aid]]. That’s ok though — aid is not something that has to be repaid, and there is a comprehensive tool available to make it easier for you to identify any aid for which you may qualify. The process will require some time and patience on your part, but the benefits are worth it! Even if you don’t find exactly the type or amount of aid you need or desire, you will know what is possible and you can focus your energies there. And you will know the sources are reliable. If you've already tried this, and/or want to try some other options for assistance, go to [[widows_with_children_more_grant_resources]]. of money available to give out grants for individuals in need who just fill out a simple application, that’s not the way it works.

 +Sometimes assistance for widows with children is specific to the offerings of a particular state. For example, since 1914 in Illinois the Crane Fund for Widow & Children Scholarship has been available to students as well as to organizations that provide services to low income folks and to schools to provide help to students who have lost their parents or whose folks cannot provide for their education. Scholarships are also available to a female undergrad whose husband has died. Those who apply need to provide an essay that explains the impact of the spouse’s death as well as what it would mean to the applicant to receive the financial assistance.
Be sure to get all the benefits you can from Social Security. You are probably eligible for payments from your spouse's account, and that could make a big difference in your financial situation. Take a look at this [[social_security|article about Social Security]]. Also do not hesitate to call the Social Security Administration directly. You will probably get an actual human being to talk to and they can be extremely helpful. Be sure to get all the benefits you can from Social Security.
