Government Contracting/Housing Grants?


Hi. Do you know where I could apply for legitimate housing grants? Thank you for your time.

Hi Miss Susan,

Most government (U.S.) grants through HUD (Housing & Urban Development) are not administered directly to individuals, but to agencies and states that further distribute funds to local authorities. There are programs for rural housing, teachers & etc., that channeled through  county & state agencies, and they vary state by state as to whom to contact and the process for qualifying specific to the type of assistance requested.

One resource on the federal level can be located here;

and from there you can find info specific to your state / locale, points of contact and the various programs that may be of interest.

You did not provide any specific info other than "grants" which I translate into seeking funds that do not require repayment. There are an enourmous amount of resources you can locate online, your local library and higher learning institutions, many offer free assistance that may aid you and your needs & requirements.

Outside the federal gov't. level there are NGO'S ( NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS), charities, foundations, institutions and private organizations and individuals with criteria specific to their funding amounts, qualifying and targeted recipients of their particular "grants" or assistance that will require you to conduct your own due diligence in identifying those of interest to you, and that meet your criteria and determinations of the legitimacy of such.

Good luck, whether seeking opportunities for yourself, other individuals, groups or if this is a research or similar based project.

Best Regards,
