    We own a small trucking company and are looking for grants that may be available for recovery, diesel emissions, or any type of funding that can may include small business grants.
    We are really looking for any type of financial assistance.

    Grants are just getting other people to pay for your stuff.

    Ask your local truck dealer. They usually are on top of any free gubment money because it means more sales for them.

    While I agree with this statement and have 2 views, just remember that if they don't get the $$$ some a-hole of welfare might :biggrin_2554:

    Well, that welfare moron will get theirs too. It is the total gimme, gimme mindset that has gotten us $14 Trillion in debt. It needs to stop somewhere. OOIDA bugged me to apply for APU grant money that was available in my area. I refused. I would be even willing to give up my disabled veteran meager pension if the government also would abolish just a quarter of the unconstitutional junk they do. As long as they are going to hand out free money to those that didn't earn it, I see no need to give up the measly sum they give me each month for bleeding in uniform. If the public will quit sticking their hand out and begging government to give them something, as a consolation prize, I will give up my pension. Then maybe we can get a handle on this mess before my grandchild is taxed at 75% to pay for it.

    But they can just print more. :) Agree with what you posted above & would think grants would be a open door for most any gov't agency to look in on you when ever they desired.
