Government Grants – Federal Grants

With the US economy in a state of recession, many Americans are feeling the crunch when it comes to their money. They are cutting back on their spending and even on necessities, but this doesn’t have to be. What many Americans don’t know is that there are billions of dollars at their fingertips that are being distributed in the form of government and private sector grants and all they need do is apply.

This is free money that does not need to be repaid and that many companies and organizations continue to fund because of the great tax breaks, among other benefits. In fact foundations are required by law to give away 5% of their total assets each year to maintain their tax-exempt status.

Government grants are free cash donations that are funded by tax dollars. There are over 1500 Federal grants programs managed by 57 different Federal agencies and

The federal exchange option – healthinsurance.org

The federal health insurance marketplace (HealthCare.gov) opened for business in the fall of 2013, and has provided an affordable health insurance shopping platform for millions of Americans.  Admittedly, the federal exchange – along with many of the state-run exchanges – got off to a very rocky start in October 2013. But by December of that year, things were working better, and the exchange was quite functional during the latter half of the six-month initial open enrollment period.

In August 2014, Kevin Counihan, who had served as CEO of the highly successful state-run exchange in Connecticut, was selected to be the CEO of the federally run marketplace.  In the ensuing years, the federally run exchange has continued to grow and improve. Counihan left the post at the beginning of the Trump administration.

In 2014, there were 191 health insurers selling policies on the federal exchange in 36 states (including states with

Government finances include revenues, expenditures (spending), debt, and assets (cash and security holdings).

These statistics are collected quarterly or annually. Every fifth year (years ending in ‘2’ and ‘7’) the Census of Governments is conducted. The same questions are asked as in the annual

Federal government of the United States

The federal government of the United States has three branches of government: the legislature, executive, and judiciary, as established in the United States Constitution.

When the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution, they wanted to make sure that their new government would not have any of the problems that the colonial British government did.[1] For example, they did not want there to be any person in the government who had complete power and could do whatever he wanted, like a king. They also did not want any part of the government to get so powerful that nobody could control it. Because of this, they split the government’s power into three different branches. Each branch has ways of balancing out the power of another branch if it gets too powerful. This is called the system of checks and balances.[1]

The executive branch is the part of the government that enforces
