Grants are a form of funding awarded by a private foundation, or a federal or state government department or agency. Grants are based on a competitive process with strict guidelines for applying and using the funds. Grant funding agencies use grants as a way to accomplish a specific goal that the organization wants to achieve. There is a common belief that grants do not have to be repaid which is true but there are guidelines in place that must be followed and if not you can end up having to repay the grant.
