There is so much hype about getting grants for a small home business that people actually believe that there is free money waiting about. It is not so easy. First, grants are given with expectations. If you can't meet the requirements and expectations, you will not get the grant. Most grants are for large businesses that are in the energy or tourist business. There are medical grants and social grants. There are no grants for lazy sloths. You will not get a grant to watch tv or take a vacation.
