Uncle Sam cares about small businesses and the many agencies of the Federal Government offer grants for specific industries and geographical regions.
Here are a few of the standout small business grants for 2018:
- The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)
- Small Business Administration
- U.S. Department of Agriculture
Private Sector Grants
The government isn’t the only grant provider in the U.S., in fact, there are hundreds of grants available for small businesses. These are provided by some of the most prominent brands in the world.
We don’t have time to list every single one, but here are our favorites for 2018:
- Visa’s Everywhere Initiative
- FedEx Small Business Grant Contest
- Amber Grant
- National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE) Micro-Business Grants
