The Advantages of a Grant! Grants offer a number of benefits that any person and business in need of funding should consider.

No repayment necessary: Grants are non-repayable. Once you’re awarded the grant money, it’s yours without any strings attached. There’s no need to worry about monthly payments or piling on more debt. Repayment is the fundamental difference between a grant and a loan, and also what makes grants more valuable than loans.

No risk: Grants are a no-risk way to obtain the financing you need. Grants do not require repayment and will only benefit you or your business.
