What are grants?

A grant is an award of financial assistance. The primary purpose of a grant is to transport a thing of value from a Federal agency to a recipient to carry out a public purpose of support or incentive authorized by a law of the United States. A grant is distinguished for a contact, which is then used to acquire property or services for the Federal government's direct use or benefit.

Grants are associated by company, state, local or tribal government, research institution or academia, not-for-profit, or any other kind of institution.
