I just wanted to put a word of advice to you all. If you want to apply for grants or any type of assistance, keep all of your financial records handy.
When you apply for any type of grants or assistance, you will need to have these documents. So dont throw anything away, and keep it organized. THis will help get rid of any headaches and speed up the process.
I speak from experiance. I have qualifed and applied for a grant through savethedreamohio.gov. I had to search out some of my past tax records. I almost had to start the process over again. If they grant me all I can get, I will have my home equity loan and past due property taxes.
By the way, I could of gotten up to $35,000. Don't give up and drive on.
