U. S. Government Grant Department

Given the $billions in grants awarded each year it's logical to think there is a department in charge. In fact there is no central grant department. There are multiple agencies, described below.

IMPORTANT: No legitimate “U.S. Government Grant Department” will ever call to notify you that you have been awarded a grant. If you do get such a call, IT IS A SCAM; do not believe them. Never give them any information and never send them money - you will never get it back. To learn more about this and similar scams please see our article about Free Money Phone Call Scams.

Regardless of what you read, grant-awarding departments don't give grants to individuals. They deal only with other government agencies, housing agencies, non-profits, educational institutions and others. Here's where you can look to find personal assistance:

For money help see our article on Financial Aid; check out Pell Grants if you're a student; see Grants for Business for to start or grow your business; Grants for Research if that applies to you, and Government Grants to Purchase a Home for help buying or keeping your home.
