I want to open a hands-on vocational shop to help kids and adults that need our help world-wide. I also want to give back to our community to fix and repair things. Many people can not afford the high-dollar repair that corporate owners charge. Is there a grant to help others and give back to the world?

We commend you on a noble goal John!

Here are a few suggestions:

- Do an internet search of community development grants available for your city/county/state. Often the states have block grants that let them support this kind of activity.

- Check out this article about grants for nonprofits. It will give you some good tips about how to go about finding government as well as private and foundation grants.

- Take a look at the tomsofmaine website and their program called "50 states for good." They support programs that "do good in their communities" and in 2015 they provided $20,000 to grassrotts nonprofits in each state in the U.S. Their 2016 program isn't until the fall but that gives you plenty of time to put together an application. Online nominations will probably be open in the summer.

Good luck!
