When a vital industry to the national economy such as the trucking industry is struggling, public and private segments come together by providing grants and other forms of assistance. This is precisely what is taking place right now. There are great opportunities for trucking companies, truck driving schools, truck drivers and potential owners/operators for grants.
Whether you are in the trucking industry or just a small business looking for some help in the form of grants, you can always find one you can apply for. Look for grants that are created to help your specific industry, location, or current economic condition.
With up to $50,000 available to small businesses across the U.S. you have multiple opportunities to win one. These grants cover everything from technical assistance to funding for improvement projects, encouraging new business, energy efficiency, and much more.
The grants for the trucking industry are available in the form of direct cash, tuition assistance for truck drivers, career development, business growth, and enterprise grants. These grants are being offered by local organizations, the government, and through schools with $4,000 to $500K in funding.
