Seeking a grant for an individual or business?

Unfortunately, when it comes to grants, there are many rumors and even scams. The fact is, most grants are given to established charitable organizations - not to individuals or businesses.

Although it may not always be possible to find a grant, we want to help.

BUSINESS owners can contact the library's Business + Career Librarian

INDIVIDUALS who need help with housing, medical bills, or other life situations can call the United Way's HelpLink hotline. If you're in the Dayton area, simply dial 2-1-1.

STUDENTS seeking college scholarships might find these websites helpful. Or, visit your library to research with scholarship books.
