Small Parent Business Grants Remove The Barrier Between You And Self Employment
As a single parent, it is a foregone conclusion that you must have a job to support your family. However, this does not mean that you have to settle for a career that you do not find satisfying or rewarding. After all, single moms and dads are often educated, creative, motivated individuals. What they lack is the freedom to make investments due to a lack of a second stable income in the household. If this describes your situation and you have a great idea for a new business you cannot act on due to a lack of venture capitals, you may be eligible for one of a number of single parent small business grants.
The Count Me In program is a set of services developed to support families of single women, encouraging them to move out into the workplace and put their ideas to work. Divorce and family tragedy do not need to lead to poverty, and the Count Me In program offers grant monies to single moms with great business ideas to prove this point. You can learn more at makemineamillion.org.
A great idea for a new business can be rewarded even if you fall in the low income bracket at this time. Small business grants are not loans; they do not have to be paid back. Therefore, your credit and income are often a non issue. At newusafunding.com, single parents and others can use a single application to apply for a variety of small business grants. Approval of your grant will be based primarily on the feasibility of your business plan. The goal of many of these programs is to provide the opportunity of self employment to anyone with a great idea, and not just those who have the money to get it off the ground.
Self employment seems out of reach for so many, and mothers of young and teenage children who are now single due to the loss of a spouse or issues with domestic violence. Project Single Moms Worldwide, Inc. is dedicated to helping these women regain their self confidence and follow the dreams they once had. Families of single parents are at high risk for debt, poverty, and even becoming homeless. The Small Business Academy, started by Project Single Moms, Inc. is dedicated to providing financial and emotional support to these moms. Additional information is available at projectsinglemoms.com.
Another great resource for small business grants is Next Level Funding. A single father or mother can find the backing they need for the development of their new small business, creating their own wealth and rebuilding their lives around a new rewarding career. With a little control over their work lives, they will be better able to manage a household, especially with the issue of unemployment being behind them. You can learn more at nextlevelfunding.com.
Specifically designed for low income parents, the Community Development Financial Institution is government funded. A lone parent seeking backing for a small business idea can find the support then need here. The idea of this program is to offer funding to these individuals for the development of small business, which, in turn, will help build their communities and their respective economies. Information regarding eligibility and application is available at cdfifund.gov.
Another organization dedicated to the growth and support of small businesses across the country is the United States Small Business Association. This group services a larger population than just single parents, but single moms and dads will benefit from what they offer. Funding is available for individuals with good ideas and sound business plans. You can learn more at sba.gov.
