Overview of Services
Thousands of individuals and businesses contact Resource Associates each year to inquire about the bountiful grant opportunities featured on TV and the internet that seem to be oozing out of Washington. Despite the promises of "free money" and "unlimited grants to pay off your bills" from advertisers trying to sell their books and subscription services, it does not take long for those who contact our offices to uncover the truth behind the hype and gimmicks...
There is not a lot of grant money available for individuals and businesses and it really does take a professional grant writer to find and compete for the limited grants and funding that do exist.
At Resource Associates, we believe that the "free money" hype does nothing more than create false hope and waste our clients' time and resources.
Most of the garbage that our competitors try to sell the public encompasses useless information on grants that businesses and individuals aren't even eligible to apply for or outdated databases cluttered with loans and government programs that have nothing to do with grants. These scammers make their money by cranking out their junk to volumes of trusting customers while making futile guarantees that their customers can expect a million dollar check in the mail any day now. When the public becomes the wiser, these fly by night scammers disappear or call themselves by another name. The founder of this scam industry (whom we would rather not mention by name) is one of the few that has stuck around. This individual continues to promote these fraudulent messages (through wacky commercial advertising and archaic pamphlets) despite being sanctioned by the feds and sued countless times.
Resource Associates is not a scam company. We have been in business for over 15 years; we have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau; and we were founded by (and continue to be run by) professional grant writers. We host an entire department of grant researchers who spend countless hours investigating and carefully following grant funding trends for individuals, businesses, and other types of entities. By doing this, our researchers have sifted through the hype and have uncovered the true funding opportunities that our clients are eligible to apply for and likely to be awarded. Because we are first and foremost a grant writing firm, our expert writers are able to pull together beautifully prepared proposals that increase our customers' prospect of a grant award even further.
Resource Associates is proud to offer several affordable services that are uniquely designed to match individuals and businesses with quality funding opportunities and then help these individuals pursue and obtain such funding. Determining if you are eligible to even apply for a grant or alternative funding source is an important first step - and we provide this advisement service free of charge. A simple phone call to our office (or an e-mail inquiry to our Grant Wizard will help us determine if pursuing grants is even a viable option for you. Our expert advisors and grant writers are trustworthy and will honestly and reliably tell you the truth regarding your potential eligibility and likelihood of acquiring funding as opposed to trying to sell you worthless books and useless services.
If you are considered to be "funding eligible," Resource Associates will then (and only then) be able to offer you an array of affordable services that will help you find (and apply for) the very best grant opportunities with little time and investment on your part.
