Some Truths About Small Business Grants in Alberta

Few grants exist for start-up business, but a few do exist. If you’re starting a business, you should stop wasting your time looking for grants. Just read this post: I include them there.

So, who does qualify for grants?

To make that easy for you, I’ve listed out the industries where government grants are available:

Tier A organizations — Millions available.

  • Agriculture
  • Environment
  • Indigenous
  • Technology
  • Non-profit

Tier B organizations — Fewer grants, but highly valuable.

  • Affordable Housing
  • Arts & Culture
  • Employment (hiring, recent graduates, or training grants)
  • Export
  • Infrastructure
  • Media (films, magazines, digital publications)
  • Mining
  • Municipality grants

How can you find them in an easy way?

I started building a list of Alberta government grants in 2012. That is when I started writing grants professionally, and finding grants back then was really challenging.

Well, in 2018 I moved my grant database on my website – for FREE.

That means you can find over 1,000 sources of FREE funding online 24/7 365 days a year.

NEXT STEPS.

  1. Search for grants for free. If your time is more valuable than spending four hours searching for grants, Alberta Business Grants (ABG) can provide this service VIP. Email support@albertabusinessgrants.ca
  2. Once you found your #1 grant, you need to speak with the grant agency. You can “wing it” or you can have ABG help you VIP.
  3. Once you pass the GO/NO milestone with the grant agency, you are ready to write. You can write it yourself, or you can have us write it for you.

One final note, if you’re new to grants or it’s been a while, I have a new book that can be emailed to you. It has 100 grant tips, and it will educate you on this process, saving you time and increasing the probability of success in this area.

Other point:

  1. Monday morning I send out grant deadlines to my email list. You need to sign up to my newsletter to receive them (top bar or side bar), or download my 5 Grant Gotchas PDF
  2. You can learn about grants on my YouTube Channel
  3. You can connect with me on LinkedIn

Have a great day!
