    Shawanna,

    Welcome!! Glad you could join our community. We are people helping people. Thanks for jumping in!

    Non profit grants are an entirely different thing from regular minority business grants. Lots of funders won’t give grants to non-profits. Not sure why.

    However, there are LOTS of grants for you. Please check out http://www.grants.gov for all of the federal government grant programs. There is an astonishing amount of money there but writing those grant applications is a giant pain in the rear.

    Good luck!!

    Question: why did you start as a non-profit rather than a for profit?
