The importance of timing in business is well known, but it also applies to many aspects of life, including grants. This is because grants are made available for a limited amount of time. And if you don’t apply on time, you miss the chance of getting the grant. Some of the grants in this week’s roundup are ending in October, while the rest have dates beyond October.

Beyond the time conditions grants demand in the application process, they also have other criteria. This is why you should thoroughly go through the application so you provide the correct information. Omitting information or missing the deadline is a big reason many applications are denied. With that in mind, here are some grants you should look at and of course apply for.

These grants have a due date, which is the end of October. The grants come from a number of communities across the U.S. as well as some private organizations. Grants of $5,000, $25,000, $250,000 and all the way up to $2 million are now up for grabs by the time Halloween comes around. So, make sure to apply ASAP.

The other grants have longer deadlines, but they nevertheless have deadlines.
