Government Grants?

I’ve been hearing a lot about government grants for small businesses and I’d like to see if there is a piece of pie for me. I have a small business that’s been around for a few years and we all work virtually so I’m assuming that would make me a green company too. :smiley:

Has anyone had much luck with applying for small business grants? I’m not even sure where to start. I checked out grants.gov but was a bit overwhelmed. The idea of hiring someone to apply for my grants doesn’t appeal to me at the moment.

Any advice is appreciated.

I don’t, myself, but is there a group near you that helps new businesses, like a business alliance or something? They might be able to help you work out what you’re entitled to, and how to apply.
