Government grants and loans
The government does not offer "free money" for individuals. Federal grants are typically only for states and organizations. But you may be able to get a federal loan for education, a small business, and more.
If you need help with food, health care, or utilities, visit USA.gov's benefits page.
The government does not offer “free money”
The government does not offer free money or grants to individuals for personal needs. But you may be eligible for government benefits or loans to help with your expenses.
How to get a government loan
Government loans can help pay for education, housing, business, disaster relief, and more. Unlike grants and benefits, government loans must be repaid, often with interest.
Federal government grants are typically not given to people for personal expenses. They are for organizations that work with programs and projects funded by the government.
