Single mothers in the USA are every day empowered by the fact that there are grants in disposal for them to use. This grants if used wisely may result into success life stories. The government in co-ordination with the private sector has come up with strategic ways that can enable that the common single mother benefits through grants. There are different types of grants, which meant to assist single mothers.
Educational Grants.
This is a peculiar grant that is known to improve the livelihoods of many women, notably single mothers who aspire to get better jobs so that they can show their kids the better side of life. In the state of Philadelphia, which is estimated to harbor a broad number of single mothers who are below 18 years of age, has a larger share of college grants compared to other States. Some of the grants are governmental, but most are within the private vicinity. For example the Alicia house and Dignity three programs provide grants that cater for housing and college tuition for single mothers who wish to pursue further education. Later they assist in finding employment for these women, not mentioning guidance and counseling services.
Housing Grants
The local government in association with the Federal government provides grants to registered single mothers who are living below the poverty line. Most of the grants given are housing, whereby a family may be welcomed to come and live in the rooms which are provided by the state. In the early 70’s and late 80’s this was commonly known as the Projects in the state of Illinois. Today the government has gone further to offer grants that enable single mothers to own homes by using these grants as subsides to Mortgage loans, however, there are lengthy procedures that are to be followed.
Business Grants
Almost everyone in the government from the President himself to governors and state officials always want to see a nation whose foundations is of empowered women. Single women are always allotted grants that can help them build or continue in their businesses. After all, this nation was built on a system that considers the chief business of the American people being business.
Child supportive grants.
In my opinion, I believe the private sector is more active in giving this grant to single women than in any other. Registered single mothers in different States are guaranteed of child support grants every month, which caters for basic commodities that the child requires.
Health care Grants.
This is an overwhelming situation for single moms in the US. Medical attention is very expensive in the whole world, but having some relief towards it is a major deal. Single mothers and children who are registered in their States can benefit from this one in a million grants to maintain good health.
The government and private sectors have made milestone steps in uplifting single mothers who are living on the chains of poverty. I think by providing such grants shows our kind hearted behavior which considers us human and worth to the title mankind.
