In the United States, ever since the 1970s, there has been an effort to increase environmental awareness. Back then, it was called “the ecology movement.” Today, you’ll more often hear reminders to “reduce, reuse, and recycle.” Over the years, it has become more and more mainstream. Thanks to federal government grants, local and state governments and various organizations and foundations have programs and campaigns in place to advocate recycling and make it easier to do.
We’re all familiar with college scholarships, but have you ever given any thought to why they exist? There actually are varying reasons for their existence, depending upon who’s offering them, and to whom. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons that college scholarships are offered. First, the school itself wants to attract talented students to enhance the reputation and prestige of the
More than 200 at-risk young Vermonters will find summer employment thanks to a federal grant program, with the focus on those who are no longer in school.
The Vermont Department of Labor has awarded grants totaling $100,000 to eight organizations from Burlington to Bennington. They will use the money to offer education and on-the-job training to Vermonters ages 16 to 24, with training in a broad array of fields ranging from early childhood development to forestry. One official said, “We’re trying to create independent citizens who have the skills needed to get a job and have a career and be a success at it.”
Amid the great music, movies, and parties that will light up Austin, Texas during the upcoming South by Southwest festival, a small nonprofit called SponsorChange.org will receive a community service award for finding a way to help college graduates battle student loan debt by volunteering.
After the big recession hit, many American homeowners found themselves in a situation of being unable to keep up their house payments. As you may recall reading at the time, some mortgages were approved for buyers who did not necessarily have good prospects of being able to keep up with their house payments, and unfortunately, many of them did lose their homes.
Student loan consolidation is the process of taking multiple outstanding loans and reorganizing them into a single loan, sometimes with a longer repayment period and therefore a lower monthly payment. If you’re in serious debt and ineligible for student loan forgiveness, consolidation could offer the solution you need. Here’s what you need to know.
Native Americans historically have had lower rates of home ownership and business ownership than the overall population of the United States. Finding the funding to buy a house or start a business can be tough, especially in times of tighter lending standards. In response to this, the federal government has made government money available through various programs. To address the issue of low rates of home ownerships,
Some people may be skeptical that government grants are real because they seem too good to be true. They do exist and are available, and I have countless happy students who can attest to that. Here’s what you need to know though. Grants exist for a purpose. The reason that the government gives money to individuals, organizations, and small businesses is that the grant funds fulfill a purpose.
If you are an American homeowner whose mortgage is (or was) with Ally Financial, Citigroup, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, or JP Morgan Chase, you’ll be interested in this news. You may be eligible for part of a financial settlement to help avoid foreclosure. The settlement will provide as much as $25 billion in relief to distressed borrowers and direct payments to states and the federal government.
It’s generally assumed that veterans have a sweet deal with all kinds of school benefits and educational grants. The reality, though, is that there are various programs and qualifying factors that mean that some can receive educational grants, while others struggle to pay off hefty student loans, just as civilians do.
Congratulations–you got a grant! Now is it a one-time grant, or is it renewable? And if it’s renewable, what do you have to do to receive the next round of funding? Each allotment of grant money has its own set of conditions. One of these addresses what happens when the funding period has elapsed. One of the possibilities is that it may be one-time funding, and that you aren’t eligible to reapply in future funding cycles.
There are numerous ways that you can beat the high cost of tuition. Two of the main ones are scholarships and educational grants. I sometimes get questions about what the difference is between them, as well as what all the other types of educational grants are, such as fellowships, subsidies, work study programs, and more. What they have in common is that any free money that
Most people purchase real estate in hopes of earning wealth from their purchase, just as they would with any other investment asset. However, real estate is unique in that it has four distinct components of investment return. Essentially, here are the four ways you can make money as a result of real estate ownership:
– Appreciation in value
– Cash flows
– Income tax benefits
– Mortgage principal pay down
It’s important to note that just because there are several components of returns, that does not mean you will earn money on real estate investments. Many people lose money due to insufficient research and analysis, as well as through unmitigated risk issues. Do your homework before investing in real estate.
One form of business funding is a guaranteed loan. Some people may misunderstand what the word “guaranteed” means in this context, though. It does not mean that there is a guarantee that the loan will be made, no matter what. What the word “guarantee” means here is that the loan is backed by government funding so that the lending institution will be fully or partially reimbursed if the loan is not repaid.
TYPros Foundation has grants for people with creative, innovative ideas geared toward Tulsa’s young adults
Do you have a great idea that you think would generate excitement and interest among the community’s young professionals? Maybe it’s a festival, event, program or something novel and eye-catching that you’ve frequently envisioned. Whatever the idea, the TYPros Foundation wants to know and is seeking grant applicants. Launched last year, the foundation aims to develop the next generation of community and philanthropic leaders and provide financial support for projects, events or programs that advance the foundation’s mission.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently awarded nearly $10.5 million in grants designed to protect children and other vulnerable groups from health hazards in their homes. This grant funding highlights the link between housing and health and develops cost effective methods for mitigating residential hazards. HUD’s grants are being awarded to academic and non-profit research institutions studying new methods to recognize and control residential health and safety hazards such as asthma triggers, bed bugs, mold, and radon.
The people and organizations that provide grants and funding don’t like throwing their money away any more than you do. They want to know that they’re getting their money’s worth and that they’ve chosen the most deserving recipients. So how can they tell how well their grants and funding are working? The measuring stick for how much value has been derived from the funding is the
We’re all eager to get government grants. (Hey, I’m no exception–I’ve gotten plenty of free government money for myself and my business, and always am on the lookout for more.) One of the most common questions is how to apply for it. Well, the answer is, it depends. Let me explain. You may already know that there are many, many funding programs out there, and they have their own ways of matching their available funding with deserving recipients.
