What is a grant?

A grant is a non-repayable fund provided by an organisation, for a particular purpose. Grants are often awarded to non-profit entities, as well as businesses or individuals. The process for applying for a grant for a specific business will almost always include some level of compliance and reporting, which will then be assessed for eligibility by the grant maker. You can apply for a grant from the government, the European Union, local councils and charities. You won’t need to pay a grant back, but there’s a lot of competition and they are almost always awarded for a specific purpose or project.
