The US Government grants usually subjected to a particular project that endorses positive outcomes. This project must have a positive effect on society more than private benefits. Grants may come from the state government or federal government.
Federal grants are usually issued to companies or firms rather than a particular individual. These grants have three types such as Formula, Earmark and Project grants.
The Project grants are for those companies that do the research programs. A pharmaceutical company that does researches for an active drug that can be used to fight a certain disease is a good example of the company that qualifies for the project grants. The Earmark grants can be given to legislators. These grants were being added to the bill that the legislators passed which helps the project to get funding which does not require public reviews. This type of grant could easily be abused by the lawmakers. The Formula grants were given for funding an individual program as being authorized by the existing law. These funds were the money that the government could use for protecting the forest and other programs that are demoting the substance abuse.
State grants are grants coming from specific countries that are usually given to individuals. It includes the promotion of a higher education such as education grants and college grants.
Education Grants were given to both individuals and institutions. Institutions may utilize the money for improving their facilities while the persons who are in high needs, part of the minority community, or those physically handicapped such as blind and deaf may use that grant to finish their education. College grants are given to those higher achievers that need financial assistance for their college. The government may either pay the portion of their college fees or undertake all of their expenses, which depend on to each case.
