Grants & Loans

Can I get a loan or a grant from the Treasury Department?

Contrary to the impression of many people, the Treasury Department generally does not administer any financial assistance, loan, or loan guarantee programs to individuals or businesses nor does Congress set aside any monies for grants to start and/or expand a small business.
