I  have never been able to find a free grant for individuals, but I'm not an expert on grants.  I did search a lot for my own family and came up empty.  As for your deb, you can try calling a national credit counseling program - they will go over all your expenses and see if they can work to lower your credit card payments and get you on a budget.  Or they will advise you to declare bankruptcy if they think you are just in too deep.  If it's credit card debt the best thing to do is acall the company and ask for them to get you onto a hardship plan.  if it's back-owed utilities, make sure you are on the low-income billing plana dn then ask about setting up payments for the past due amount.  Read my page on raising cash fast to get some ideas about bringing in some money, maybe it will spark some new ideas that will work for you.  I have heard good things about www.modestneeds.org.  Do you get food stamps?  Are your kids on your state's medical plan (if it has one)?  Rosie

Do you rent or own your home?  Have you tried getting asisstance from the dept of housing or from HUD?  Have you tried local churches, Salvation Army, United Way, etc?  Give me more info and I'll see what I camn find for you.  Best wishes, Rosie

Wow, I feel your pain. I too am the only support my children have. Are you getting any government assistance at all. I pray for everyone except myself anyway and I will pray for you and your family.I wish that I could help soo much. I am in great need also though but if I was in a position to help I promise that i would. People have to go through things to understand alot and trust me ma'am I UNDERSTAND. God bless you.

but you have a job.  i was laid off after 25 years with the same company as were 15 other people that were there.....the only reason they chose us is because we made more than they could pay a new person.  now i am almost 50 and nobody will hire an older worker.  it is not my fault that i was let go.  i did my job and was committed to my company for all this time and in the end, they could now care less and want to save money on a younger worker with nowhere near the knowledge i have.  we have no control and wish we had a job...your day will come.

Someone posted this link here on Aidpage - in the upper right corner click on the FREE UMLIMITED USE area:

http://www.governmentgrants.org/

It's a free software download, fyi.  Thanks to the original poster! It seems to be mostly grants for organizations like schools, but it never hurts to check.

Best wishes, Rosie

i am a single father of 4 and have searched forever to find info on grants i even checked obamas website and they want a fee for the info,i have only been scamed so don't waste your money or time.the grants only go to people that don't need them,people like us only get scamed and can't gain access to the grants that are suppose to be there to help us.if you find any real free info please pass it along i will do the same.davekeener@ymail.com.
