What is a governmental grant agency and how can I use its services?

The government grant agency is sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services and is responsible for assisting citizens with searching for and apply to receive grants sponsored by the federal government.

There are over 900 grant programs available from 26 federal grant-making agencies. These agencies award over $360 billion annually to the grant community, including state, local and tribal governments, academic and research institutions, and non-profit agencies.

Types of grants available include:
* agriculture
* arts
* business and commerce
* community development
* consumer protection
* disaster relief
* education
* employment,
* energy
* environmental quality
* food and nutrition
* health
* housing
* humanities
* statistics
* legal services
* natural resources
* regional development
* science and technology
* social services
* income security
* transportation.

Contacting the Department of Health and Human Services to find out if you or your agency qualifies for grant benefits may prove to be difficult in and of itself. Perhaps the first course of action would be to contact an attorney that deals with federal grants for assistance.
