Grants, as most people are familiar with, are funds which are provided by one party to another, and usually by a government agency. Grants do not need to be repaid and can help people fulfill their financial goals. The agency decides to award grants according to the strength of the application, and also determines the benefits that can be provided.

There are several federal grant agencies offering grants to all sorts of individuals and groups, and many of them are just like you. Some of the most famous ones include:

US Agency for International Development (USAID)

The main purpose of the USAID is to end poverty while encouraging governments to promote the security and well-being of their people. Because this agency strives to help food shortages, poor health, etc., the USAID currently operates in over a hundred countries and offers grants to strong, positive applicants with a similar mission. Additionally, they have already reached millions of people facing poverty. They also encourage and promote good governments, women’s rights, building stronger societies and ending poverty throughout the world.

Ultimately, there are about 9 programs currently operated by the USAID. All of them provide different grants for different purposes, but all focus on the aims listed above.
