Government grants for small business may indeed help with new product development in many cases, if an eligible small business owner can illustrate why such an investment would make sense to the government. There are grants that can help get patents for new inventions, and those that offer funds to people or small businesses to use while they are developing a new product that they will sell. Each of these funding options has its own prerequisite terms. So, you will need to check these before deciding on a grant that you can use. You also may want to consider the state and local tier grant offers as well as the national ones to be certain you consider all of your options.
