You normally never need to repay the government for government grants you are awarded. Grants are designed to be a lump sum offer of financial aid given to deserving groups or individuals to be used in a certain way, depending on what the grant is for. There are business grants that are intended for business wants, personal grants for education and housing, and ones that community groups or organisations can get to help them complete their entrepreneurial objectives. If you are interested in a grant you should be sure to check the available programs at the national and state levels of government.
