There’s no shortage of web-based banner ads and commercials promising small businesses and entrepreneurs the chance to get government funds to pursue their dream. Some even tempt applicants with the possibility of getting money before your business has even gotten off the ground. These “free money” advertisements are almost always too good to be true, however; truly interest-free grants and programs are rare, and most of today’s businesses will find it hard to qualify for any type of cash gift that doesn’t have to be paid back. (These are generally limited to large institutions and major organizations doing massive-scale work to help the infrastructure of a city, for example.)
