Grants for single mother assistance are not easy to find. It will take plenty of research and the single mother will need to contact several state and federal agencies in order to find information on all the packages she may need. For basic assistance grants, it is probably wisest to begin with the Department of Human Services and discuss with a counselor the grant options available. Single mothers wishing to obtain grants for a small business should contact the Small Business Administration. Grants for single mother education assistance can be applied for at the school the single mother plans to attend.
Grants for single mother assistance take many forms. Many grants are small, especially grants for single mother education assistance. However, these small grants can be combined with other forms of assistance and aid. By combining several grant and assistance packages, the single mother can often finance tuition, books, transportation and, even, daycare.
The most common type of federal education grant is a Pell Grant, which can pay from $400 to $4,050 per year, depending on the cost of the school, the need of the student and the student’s enrollment status. The financial aid office at all participating schools will have all information necessary to apply for these grants.
There are numerous foundations offering grants for single mother assistance. These foundations generally only require that the applicant be a single mother or the child of a single mother in order to be eligible for the grant. Some foundations offer grants to assist in paying off student loans. The applicant is often expect to perform community service or do volunteer work in order to qualify for the grant. Professional women who are willing to volunteer their professional services to the community are especially eligible for grants to repay student loan debt. Teachers who are also single mothers may qualify for these grants without doing additional volunteer service, as teaching is considered to be a contribution to the community in and of itself.
Grants for single mother housing assistance are available through HUD. In addition to HUD grants, many states offer housing grants to single mothers. These grants may take the form of special loan packages and they may also pay all or a portion of the closing costs for home purchases. There are also grants available to help single mothers with the down payment on a home. These grants are generally State sponsored. The local Housing Authority will have information on the State’s availability of grants for single mother housing assistance.
