2019-06-14 09:23:33 -0700 answered a question Where can I get a grant to remove mold in my home?

There are some places you can look to  in order to find help taking care of this. The fact that the mold could present health risks should also make it easier for you to qualify for help.. If you have home insurance that would be the best place to start. You might also check with lchurches in your area to see if any of them provide home repair services for the elderly as part of their ministry.  To find government programs as well as private programs see  this good review of a range of groups that help with home repairs.

2019-06-14 08:48:01 -0700 answered a question Are there startup grants for profitable, decade-old businesses?

I am not aware of a federal grant that will match startup money. 

In general, a profitable, decade-old business is not considered a startup. But the fact that you are an existing business that is making a profit should make it easier for you to find loans and possibly some kinds of grants. This article about Grants for Business provides a great overview of the opportunities that may be available to you.

I would also recommend that you check your state's website and see what types of grants might be aailable. Sinde you are providing an important service that helps kids and the environment might qualify you for a grant provided by Indiana.

I was getting a new HVAC for my home and the agency went under my home to discover a leak in the HVAC system and mold underneath the home.  Also, mold was located in my home located only in the hallway. I need to have the room torn down, cleaned and rebuilt along with the crawlspace to be cleaned of mold and replace all the damaged areas before I can put the HVAC in. Where can I get a grant to remove mold in my home?

Has anybody heard of that? When I get enough equipment, I like to be incorporated in my county's vocational program. But the cost of equipment, earth movers, is a big setback. I am in Northeast Indiana teaching kids about their environment. When Obama was President, there was a grant that matched startup money. You just need to show a profit for 10 years and you don't have to pay that back. Are there startup grants for profitable, decade-old businesses?

Depending on where you live you might be able to get a grant or a guaranteed loan from the Department of Agriculture.Thes loans are provided low income owners when the repairs are considered necessary for health and/or safety reasons. Do a search for the Rural Repair and Rehabilitation Program. Also get in touch with the nearest HUD office for any referrals or advice they may be able to provide. And see if there is an office of NeighborWorks anywhere near you, they can sometimes offer low cost loans. And take a look at Grants for Seniors for an overview about grants and other resources for seniors

I live in a home purchased by my son. He moved in with me after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It's hard to get loans when so many medical issues are involved. The driveway has tree roots lifting the concrete and around the house the concrete is slowly falling away. I was given an estimate of $16,000 to repair the entire driveway. Is there a grant available for me at age 63 to get this done that I can apply for? Are there grants to repair or replace driveway?

2018-08-09 16:34:16 -0700 answered a question Are there mobile home repair grants for disabled people?

There are some grants provided to help the disabled to modify or repair their homes to accommodate their disability or in some cases for repairs that if neglected would endanger the health or safety of the person. Most of these grants are given out by each state rather thant  the federal government and/or by local community service agencies.

Your best bet is probably to do a search on your state's website. Use words like "disabled" "home repairs" "grants" and perhaps the name of the county you live in. You may find state grants available or they may point you to service groups that provide help in these cases. 

Also check out the tips and resources discussed in Grants for Home Repair.

2017-05-03 15:00:17 -0700 answered a question Are there California home improvement grants?

The answer depends on where you live in California and what type of home you have. Many counties have grant and loan programs to help homeowners make repairs and improvements. For example in the San Diego area the county offers grants of as much $8,000 to low income folks living in mobile homes.  Some counties have a Residential Rehabilitation Loan and Grant Program for those making energy-efficient improvements. They offer loans of  as much as $60,000 and grants up to $5000. Check your county’s website to see what they may offer. Also take a look at this review of Home Improvement Grants for other potential options.

2017-04-18 14:04:57 -0700 answered a question Is there a grant for solar energy for your home?

I don't believe there are any longer any grants being provided to get people to go solar. The only incentive provided is a tax break when you file your taxes ... in some cases you get to deduct some or all of what you spend on getting the solar panels installed. You can also find places that will install the panels at no cost but they will charge you a monthly fee (lower than your electric bill). And they take all the tax breaks. 

If you are a senior you may be able to find some help with utility expenses. Check out this review of grants for seniors.

2017-04-17 22:58:07 -0700 edited question Is there a grant for solar energy for your home?

I have heard there is a Solar Panels Grant or the Government is giving away solar panels. Is there a grant that would help me get a Solar Company install Solar Panels and all the equipment that goes with it so we can tell the Electric Companies they can stop draining our bank account.  Our bills are  from  $150 to $350 and not going to get any lower. We are going broke.

It is bad enough that our plumbing is bad.  We can't afford to fix them.  We are retired and on a fixed income.

2014-09-02 18:28:00 -0700 answered a question Are there grants for a pannus reduction surgery?

I'm not aware of grants for this specific purpose. However, it could be covered by health insurance depending on what medical problems it might be causing. We would recommend that you go through your state's health care exchange and talk to one of the counselors that should be available to health you as a result of “Obamacare”.
