Ok, I am on a fixed income with 2 children. My business will help with-in the community such as purchasing bank owned homes, then I would lease or sell them to a broad band of clients along with helping them clean up and establish credit along with free support information to assist with keeping their homes and utilizing their income to become fit their family needs through support programs assistance. I need your suggestions.

http://www.grants.gov/

or

http://www.hud.gov/grants/index.cfm


That is the Unites States site - start there.

I hope you have experience writing a Grant and understand how the funding works. And that its called 'Soft Money'.

If you have never worked with grants and have no knowledge about Grant Writing - you need to rethink you plan of how to support yourself.
