Stimulus Grants for Small Businesses

Three Oregon wind farms win $140 million in federal stimulus

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act includes provisions for giving small businesses around the country money they need to fulfill projects or offer products and services. According to Entrepreneur magazine, of the $800 billion in stimulus money available under the act, $54 billion is slated for state fiscal stabilization, $48 billion for transportation, $44 billion for energy, $41 billion for infrastructure, $25 billion for education, $17 billion for health care information technology, $13 billion for housing and $7 billion for other projects. If you’re ready to get your own piece of the stimulus money pie for your small business, it will take some work on your part to prepare and then to apply.

Step 1

Learn about any products or services you offer that may qualify you for stimulus money. Visit the Government Express website and click on one of the "Doing Business with Links." You can choose by the city, state or federal government level with which you want to do business. For example, if you want to do business with the city, you would choose the “Doing Business with Links: Cities.” The links will give you an idea of any products and services you offer that may land you some of the stimulus money.

Step 2

Step 3

Subscribe to Onvia. While you are on the Recovery website, subscribe to the Onvia bid tracking service. The service sends out emails to alert you of emerging opportunities that may match your business.

Step 4

Identify the contacts for the programs that fit your business. For each stimulus money opportunity, the name, phone number and email of a contact person (typically a procurement manager) are provided. You can call or email the contact person to introduce yourself and your small business offering. Getting to know the procurement managers can help you when you're applying for stimulus money because they can provide insider advice and tips on how to complete your application in order to boost your success rate.

Step 5

Follow the instructions for each opportunity. When you identify a stimulus money opportunity your small business is eligible for, carefully follow the instructions on how to apply. The process will differ depending on the project. In some cases you will need to submit a complete proposal, while in other cases you will need to respond to specific questions. If you have questions about submitting your proposal or application, contact the procurement manager for that opportunity.

Small Business Loves Obama's Plan !!!

Obama's $15 billion plan to loosen credit gets high marks from entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurs and small-business owners who groaned about corporate government bailouts bit their tongues Monday when President Obama announced a plan to inject $15 billion into the small-business loan market.
While there were pockets of hope for small businesses in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act--government grants for eco-friendly renovations, tax deductions for capital expenditures and research grants for technology development--for the most part entrepreneurs argued that those potential opportunities still paled in comparison to the billions of dollars flowing to big corporations
