Finding them can be a challenge because you have to sort through such a large and diverse pool of information to get to what you’re looking for. But don’t get discouraged! Single mom grants are available for many different things, and odds are, you can find one that can fulfill your particular financial assistance needs. There are government help, college, housing help, non-profit program, and they all cover a wide range of needs. Each type is different, so it’s best to understand all the qualifications and details of each one you apply to so you can find out which ones will meet your needs and which ones you are eligible for.

Where to find help?

There are a multitude of places that grants for single mothers can be found. Many are offered through the government. If you are trying to find a grant that is offered by the government, contact government agencies and see which ones are offered for you. There are also many federal agencies that might offer help in your state. Grants.gov is a government owned website with a database of financial aid offered and who to contact to get a hold of the particular type of financial aid. You can search “government help for single parents” on the actual website and fill out your information and provide your email address so that they can contact you if you needed.

How to Apply for State Programs?

Most government support program  have a very simple questionnaire that you need to fill out to verify your eligibility. Fill out your information clearly so that contacting you in the future will also be easier. Make sure to read the requirements and other things before beginning the application process. Before you apply, a smart idea would also be to contact someone, via phone or email, and just understand the terms and how it can help you. For example, if you need a student loan, apply to fafsa.gov and they will keep your information in a database that can also be used in the future.

Government Program For Mom

The federal government offers many state program for single mothers for a variety of different needs. support for education, food and nutrition, housing small businesses, and many other types of government help can be found. One of the important things to remember about grants is that there are eligibility requirements. Depending on the type of government grant you are applying for, the eligibility requirements will be different, so taking the time to find out if you are eligible will save you time in the long run. That way, you won’t end up filling out applications for financial help that you are not eligible for. The federal information for single moms that might be more well-known are education grants, like the Pell Grant, and housing support, such as the Housing Choice Voucher Program.

The federal government isn’t the only place you can look to. The state you live in is also a good resource to look for some assistance programs. The grants you find may be more abundant when it comes to areas that are generally managed at the state level, such as state funded education, food and nutrition, and transportation. They also offer other forms of financial assistance that can be extremely helpful for single moms who may need assistance that is not covered by specific money that is awarded.

There are also many other local non-profit organizations that you can find for help as well. For example, the Single Moms Outreach program is local to a city is California and they provide a lot of local help for the residents in their neighboring cities. Many of these non-profits are easier to find help from and are more generous in the help they are able to give as they are not backlogged with too many applicants. If you are looking for a quick and easy assistance program, finding something local many be the best way to go.

Another great type of single mom grant is business help. There are business support available for single mothers to start a new business. These types of grants help with starting up a business and provide money for the business to get on its feet. These are a lot harder to get because of the profuse amount of help that they help with. It is important to be patient with these types of grants as well. Remember, the more planned and thought out your business is, the easier it will be to get money for your business.

College Support for Mom

Even though it may seem like college financial help are only available to students who are right out of high school, there are education scholarships for single moms as well. Many college offers needful support  for single mothers and scholarships are available specifically to non-traditional students, which puts single mom students right at the top of the list. Just like any other form of assistance, college support have requirements for qualification. Often, these requirements are based on financial need, but some may have other requirements that are more specific to an applicant’s background or location, so it’s always best to make sure you qualify before actually applying.

Education assistance will also vary as to how much money is awarded. So, taking the amount into consideration might also be helpful when searching for and choosing which programs to apply to. But even programs that do not award as much financial aid as others can still be useful for single moms who want to go back to school. Every little bit helps when it comes to financial aid, so even if the grant awarded by one program you are considering is smaller than another program’s award, it may still be a good idea to apply for it if you meet the qualifications.

Housing Program for Mom

Housing can be one of the hardest to pay for. Therefore, housing information for single moms can be useful. They are also very high in demand. Often they can be very hard to find. However, there are some very nice organizations that help. For example, an organization to try out is the HIP (Housing Initiative Program). They can surely help you out.

 Housing Support for single mothers are in high demand, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get one. They are open to single mothers because many of them are on a strict income and affordable housing is not always easy to find. There are information for housing repairs as well as programs that help with purchasing a home—for example, helping with the down payment on a home. When you begin looking at buying a home, a realtor may be able to look into housing help for single mothers as well, so it never hurts to ask. The government offers housing assistance in the form of grants and other programs, but other organizations also offer housing assistance for single moms. Non-profit organizations, or NPOs, are another option to consider when searching for housing assistance programs.

Single Women Help

There are lots of good resources for women that can be used for many different things. When it comes to finding them, one of the best search strategies is to identify what it will be used for or what circumstances make your situation unique.  These can help you narrow down the search so that you will not end up with so many search results that you don’t know what to do with them. Scholarships and grants for women for education are easily found through many universities who want to encourage diversity in various academic fields. But there are specific ones for single moms, childcare, for women who have a disability, for domestic abuse victims, and other circumstances as well. As with all applications, qualifications apply, but since one of the requirements for applying is that the applicant is female, single moms will always meet that eligibility requirement.

Single mom help is available for a variety of different financial needs. When you’re looking for them, it’s best to be as specific as you can in your search. If you want housing grants, you should search specifically for them. There is so much information that you may get overwhelmed if your search is too broad. No matter what you may need it for, if you do your research, there are enough options available that you can find financial assistance in some form that can help you ease the financial burden that comes with being a single mother.

Office of Family Assistance

OFA Monitors several key federal  programs, some of the key ones are TANF and during this course they have helped more 30,000 low income families providing education and resource to low income individuals and Women. If you are looking for help Family assistance program can help you there are multiple programs in different cities throughout the country,like for help in state like California or New York, just choose your state and find the programs available close to you city [ref]Assistance for Children and Families (ACF) ACF[/ref]

I was with her father until i got pregnant with my second daughter when i was 22. I got an apartment at a low income apartment complex which was really rundown. I lived there and eventually enrolled into college and worked a part time job to pay bills and get us by. I did recieve financial aid but also had to resort to student loans to get by. I graduated recieved my degree and am working a full time job and raising my two daughters. I recently bought my own home which was a big accomplishment. I recieve no child support and its starting to get really tough with all of my bills. My question is, is there anything out there that would help pay student loans for single mothers?

  8. Hi my name is Alexis and I am soon to be 19 and currently 28 weeks pregnant with my first child(daughter). I currently live with family friends but they are losing their house so we all need to be out of here by March 1. I live in a suburb of Chicago. They are moving to Minnesota and unfortunately I cannot go with them. I have no family and no one to help shelter or support me or my baby, and none of my “friends” are willing to help me or even shelter me until I can get on my own feet. I am currently looking for work and DO have an interview set up in 10 days for a seasonal position, even though I am a high risk pregnancy due to having Epilepsy. The only money I have or will have until I find a job, will be at most $500 from my tax return. I am desperately looking for financial help. I already recieve medicaid and SNAP benefits, but Section 8 in my area is closed for an undisclosed time due to whatever compacity being met already. I tried to apply for TANF benefits but was denied 3 times. I even went so far as to look into every womens shelter in my area. They are all at capacity! So for now I’ve been put on a waiting list for if/when a bed opens up that I can take. I don’t know what else to do or where else to seek assistance. Is there anyone that can help me or direct me somewhere that I can get help? Please… I am very desperate. I don’t know what else to do anymore…… If there’s anyone out there that is reading this and can help.
    Thank you all for your time!!

    • Hey Alexis
      I am not sure if you have found assistance yet but you can try a program called Nurses for Newborns. I wish you and your baby girl the best. Keep your head up and pray.

  9. Please help. I am a single Mother to 3 beautiful children. About 5 years ago I took college courses at night trying to better myself. My parents helped by babysitting. I was told I was unable to get grants yet I was not sure why. The college persuaded me to take out loans which I did. I am now in a crisis because I will never be able to pay them back. I already paid a significant amount but feeding and clothing my children is my priority. Come to find, my credit has been attacked by creditors seeking payment for these loans. PLEASE HELP! I am in a serious crisis.

    • So Sorry to hear that Gina,
      You can try the TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) and the DHS (Department for human services). I hope they can provide you with some help further along.

    • Hey
      Nurses for Newborns is a great program and I hope this can help you. This program helped me a lot. I do think that this program can help you financially and mentally because having the problems that you are having can be very stressful for you which is not good for you or the baby. Wish you the best.

  12. I am a widow now of two years with a 4 yr old little girl. I need to find help with housing desperately. I recently saw a social worker to help my daughter with dealing with her fathers death and bad behavior issues and they said I need to get out of my toxic living situation now that is what is causing my daughters Psych issues. I live with a lot of family in a very small space and the relationships in the house are horrendous but I cannot afford housing on my own I have tried some resources but all they are interested in is me going to school before they give me info on housing assistance.Please help I am desperate to help me and my little girl have a normal healthy life.

    I’m willing to work an at home job, I’m already in school and working a full time job, but the sites I’ve found and investigated are all shams! smh…is this the American dream?

  16. I usually never express my frustration online, but after years of struggling and endlessly searching without hope, I can not help but vent. I am a single mother, who works full-time, and attends college full-time. I have been blessed to have my parent (my mother especially) to assist me through the difficult times, but I am frustrated in how our government gives so much to those who have nothing and sometimes choose to remain there due to the ridiculous assistance they receive: Section 8, food stamps, financial assistance, medical assistance, free cell phone, free vehicle, pet vouchers, etc., etc., and then there are those of us who fall between the cracks. I own my house and have struggled paying increasing utilities, taxes, insurance for years now. There is NO help for those of us who qualify for housing assistance because we do not make much (under 2g) but own our homes, yet if I transfer my deed to my parents and then rent from them, then they will pay my rent or a portion!! Does that make any sense for those of us who are attempting to be a productive member of society? The system makes it easy for people to remain in the system. Another example, I need help for the first time EVER this year with childcare while I am at work. Although I saw a letter online from the state to my county that the childcare proposal was approved, when I called DSS they stated that their department has not received the funding due to a deficit in the budget. How sad. Take from those who are trying to give to those who are not. I know everyone does not abuse the system, but I know of many who do without hesitation. It’s frustrating.

  17. I am a mother of three children. I get them every other weekend, spring break, christmas break, thanksgiving, and all summer. Is there a program to help me?

  18. Brenda Walters on

    • I suggest you try out some grants for single mothers and some other ways of assistance that is specific for your state. Surely something will come up in which you will find some aid for yourself and your daughter.

  23. Hi. I am a 51 year old single mom with a 12 yr old daughter. I left New York State about a month ago to move to Texas. I have to leave because of domestic violence (not always physical- financial, emotional). I divorced my husband in February, 2012. I live with my oldest daughter and her family, but I have always been independent. I worked up until Jan, 2012 as a home health aide. I’ve been in the nursing field for 14 years. Now I’m unemployed, may have lost all my possessions through a moving company, and don’t want to be a burden on my oldest daughter and her family. I’m so depressed about this and don’t know where to turn. I’m in tears right now. If anyone can help me find any help, please let me know.

    I’m 24 with 2 kids I have a felony and its very hard to find a job.I’m trying so hard to be an adult and take responsibility for my actions. I have no car and pushing 2 kids in a stroller to look for a job is very hard. Please we need help

  25. I am seeking financial assistance in the amount of $2400 for help in keeping my car. I was working in the Atlanta, Georgia when my company began downsizing and laying off. I am a casemanager by trade and have interviews for jobs, and feel confident that I will be able to get a job within the next two months. I am having difficulty with getting up money for my car payment which is $380 per month. I also need money for other bills which total $2400 for the months of both april and may. This will give me breathing room so to speak as I search for new employment. If someone can help, please let me know.

  26. I am a single mom and I work full time on the ambulance. We have always done ok but am struggling right now to pay the bills. I want to go back to school to get my rn degree so that I can give my son a better life. (if i dont get a better job we will always just get by and nothing will change for the better) I know once I get into school I can receive a pell grant to help with cost of classes but I’m afraid of not being able to pay all the bills while going to school. (rent, electric, gas) … Any advise on how to make this possible will be greatly appreciated. Also if anyone knows of any assistance on how to get help through this hard time now of struggling with bills please let me know. I have one son. Do Not receive child support. And after talking with family services they said that we just got approved for $150 in food stamps but that is all. (I’m a hard worker so is hard for me to ask for help) Any advise is greatly appreciated. Thank you

    • I suggest you apply for TANF (Temporary assistance for needy families) to help with other payments while you are in school. take a look and see f they can help you out while you are pursuing your education.

  27. I am a 24 year old single mother. My daughter just turmed three. Her father has not been in the picture her whole life. I have been living with my parents since she was born because we all thought it would be best if I got to stay home with her for the first few years. Now I am trying to go back to school, or find a job so that we could move out on our own, and start our own life together. My problem is I have no money for school, and I have applied everywhere around town for a job, but have yet to find one. My other problem is that I have noone to watch my daughter. My parents refuse to watch her for longer than an hour, and its getting to the point that I think they might kick us out because of all the money problems they are having. I just dont know what to do anymore. Ive been looking everywhere for a way out of our problems, but have yet to find a solution. please if anyone that is reading this has any ideas on how to help me please email me. I would be open to any ideas at this point. thank you and God Bless.

    • You should look into some specific housing grants so you and your daughter can find a place to live. Also, maybe try TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) and see if that will help you guys.

  28. Hello, I’m 18 years old and I’m a mother to a one year old daughter. I currently live with my parents, which is fine for right now. but I don’t have a job and I can’t provide for my daughters food and clothing needs. granted i do get some child support, it still doesnt seem to be enough. I don’t know what to do.

  29. It’s unfortunate we have to turn to our government for help and they cut all the programs that are for low income families. These are a few things I learned from other women in need. For section 8 or low income housing or apartments you have to go to the smaller cities and counties they always help quicker than inner city, if you are able to get it live there for the year and then transfer it to where you want to live. Find out about shelters, go stay in one that help you get housing, everything is temporary, but it help you get the resources you need.

  30. Hello to you and may you all be blessed.

  33. Hi,
    Im a single mother of my 3 yr old daughter, her father does not support her nor ask to see her. i lost my job due to a foot injury non work related and wasnt able to find another job to work around my daughters school schedule. not having any help is very difficult. i have a goal of being a kindergarten teacher, but money is a set back. if anyone has any recommendations on how to apply for help with grants please heeelppp!!

  34. Well I’ve tried applying for “grants for single moms” and I was asked to buy stuff! This is a way for them to make money and get our information so they can harass us for future donations. I don’t have a problem donating to a cause but being harassed for it is not the way to get it. Especially from single moms just barely making a living.

    • Yes, I know what you mean. It is very important that you are looking on legitimate websites, such as government (.gov) or (.edu). Most times, they shouldn’t ask you for anything.

  39. .I have a 3 year old son who has asthma,allergies,eczema, and other non life threathing problems.I am living with my parents who are being a negative influence on him.When i say negative,i mean when i tell my son to clean up his mess,my parents intervene and make me clean up and reward him with watching tv or giving him chocolates.I want to teach my child right from wrong but with my parents,its impossible.I always end up arguing with my parents and always get lashed out by them saying “why did you have him”, or other comments which are very hurtful.It has come to a point where my son doesn’t listen to me at all.He always run to the grandparents who have turned him against me in everyway possible.All i hear from them is “take parenting classes,he’s only a child”.How can i be a parent if they don’t let me be a parent to my own child.They are very bad role models.My ex keeps lying to me by giving me hundred excuses for giving very little child support even though he works.
    I want to move out from my parents home but i have no job.I finished grade 12 but didn’t receive a diploma.My parents have always been so negative towards me,discouraging me from everything.I’m afraid if i live here with them,i’m either going to fall into depression or lose my child who won’t respect me as his mother at all.I don’t want to end up onthe streets with a child.

  40. I’m a single mother of 3. I am not what the government would consider “low income” but I also take care of my mom and her bills. I am looking for help for my son who is 20 to go to college. And maybe some help with my moms house that we live in which is falling apart and I cant catch up because something is always breaking.

  41. I really dont know where to start..my fiance just recently died and we had a child together who is 6 years of age. we’ve always wanted to get married but because we lived on his diabilitie (ssi) check it was never enough to do other than pay our bills. i was not able to work for i had to take care of them both.we’ve lived together for 10 years and now that he’s died i find myself as a single mom with no income to pay my bills. everywhere i turn they tell me there out of funds i cant even get my car on the road for i cant pay my insurance, tags. and due to him getting ssi our daughter is not entittled to anything. the pain alone of missing him is unbearable and I’ve been looking for work but because theres no work ive had no luck at all. i do qulafy for food stamp, medicaid. but i need help with my rent, lights and car. please direct me in what dirrection to go..im about to be evicted and no where to go and no money.

    I am Nelly, I have worked since 5 years ago at NGO, but I can not rise the money. last year i try to study to higher education. but i found trouble. I have two children who need money also to school so it is very difficult for me to continue my study. I realize if i pursue higher education it should need much money but without go to study i can’t get good job in my country. However it will be good for my children in future. but now I am constrained by the cost of tuition and research so I could not finish my study. for additional information, I live in Indonesia. I’ve been trying to find a scholarship, but to no succeed, Can I get extra tuition assistance from this program??
    Thanks

  45. Help! I’m about to be garnished over a debt I thought was paid?! I’m a single mother of a 10mo old little baby boy, I drive a car that’s barely safe, and we have to share a bedroom at my parents house! I’m 25, too old for this! I’ve been working hard at saving & trying to get out of debt so I can take care of my son, but every time I turn around something happens. I had $700 in the bank and saving actually backfired and now it’s being garnished on a debt I thought was taken care of 4yrs ago!!!! I’m confused, have bills due, and my account is frozen now! My parents can’t afford to help, just me living here is a burden on them. Any ideas on getting out of this debt as quickly as possible are welcome. I owe maybe $15,000 over all and I do work almost full-time make $8.35/hr, but I don’t get child support….

  46. Am a single mom lost my job one year ago and this has affected my 18year old gal to join college and do Nursing Course which is her passion. Am not having any financial assistant at the moment and am still looking for job.

  49. i am a single mom with joint custody. my children are 8yrs and almost 7yrs old. i do have a job and work at a police dept. i am wondering what help i can get in buying a home. any advised would be greatly appreciated. thanks

  50. Hello. I’m a single mother of three beautiful bright young girls. I have always wanted to own my own home and since I don’t get child support for my children and my youngest has so many health issues poor thing its not easy to save money toward our goal. I do get help with my rent from section 8 which I am so grateful for, but we need a place of our own that we don’t bother our neighbors or them bother us. We have had to move so many times due to health issues and landlords not fully willing to fix issues that would normally not bother someone that was healthier. We need a house that can have special preparations to help prevent some our these issues. What would I need to look for specifically to better my chances of receiving a grant?

  52. I heard one scholar mention the above quotation and comment that most people misunderstood it.

    These are also available for out-of-state high achieving women.

    I had read about the Sturgis Fellowship at the University of
    Arkansas, and decided to give it a try.

    Do these grants apply for women that live in Puerto Rico? I live in Puerto Rico, and would like to know which institutions give grants to women that live in Puerto Rico. Thank you! Ana

    • These are mostly directed towards people that live in the United States, but you are more than welcome to check and see if it will work in your country as well!

  54. I wanted to know of the grant that is for single mothers in Georgia… ive done the websites entries, and know what school I wna go to… I just need the right info.. any answers?

  55. i have a concern i am being contacted by a person that tells me that i have received a grant of 10,200. i dont ever remember filling out a form for a grant. they are also charging me $1.92 to gain acces to this grant. is this a scam it sounds like a scam to me. i am very confused and concerned, these people knew all my info…….

    • Sounds quite scammy. You shouldn’t have to pay anything extra to receive a grant. Chances are if you paid them, they would have your credit card + more info. I wouldn’t trust this website.

  56.

  57. Single mother of 4 with the oldest one being 18 and already accepted to Adams State University. She and her cousin have been working on getting her FASFA and Pell grants in place along with the Scholarships that she has received. we are getting down to the wire to come up with the money she will need for her books and the remainder of her tuition for the first semester that the previous mentioned won’t cover. I work 50-60 hours a week at 9 an hour and have a Student loan of my own that I am having a hard time covering with the day to day expenses. I am in need of some kind of information in regards to a loan or something that will help me get my daughter at least taken care of for the first year. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. God Bless!!

  59. As a single mother who has worked all her adult life,and has always paid a ton of rent to many different homes.Mother of two,daughter who is in military and son in fifth grade.I have always provided a good home and food for my children.With the occupation of healthcare.Recently have decided that I should consider purchasing a home so my son could finally have a dog…so far I have been turned alway from any assist that could make this possible.The area in Maryland that we live are very close minded to rent to own.,and any help from the social services is not possible if u are working,they only help if you don’t work and have a bunch of kids.My credit is low to nothing due to hospital bills,with no health insurance.In my mind I always paid out for material things .That was a mistake because,It backfired with owning hospital bills,so is there such help for my hope to purchase a home instead of renting forever….

  63. I’m a single mom working a full time job, &living on my own. Been divorced for 2 years. I’m barely making ends meet. As is right now I can’t afford to have my heat turned back on due to high deposit. Its 30° right now in my state. I’m using heaters but they aren’t the greatest. My mom helps me with what she can but right now can’t help. Everywhere I’ve called in the past has told me I don’t qualify due to making too much & having joint custody of my daughter. Idk where to go or what to do. Its only the beginning of winter to pay the amount to get heat turned on will take almost all of my 2 weeks worth of pay check.

Attended college for over seven years (changed major many times) owe close to eighty thousand in loans. Cannot find a job that pays all the monthly expenses. Searching for help in every way.

  70. Hi! I’m looking of at all possible to get a grant to go back to high school! I’m 25, and never graduated! Due to babysitting issues and some other things, I’m unable to go to GED classes to learn what needs to be learned, to get the test! 200$ is a lot of money to pay for the GED tests before I know what I’m testing on, so I feel as a mother or 3, it would be much easier to do highschool classes online while being able to take care of my babies as well! Is this even possible?

  71. My full name is Mwanahawa H.Maganga, a Tanzanian single mom aged 30 years old. In my life I met hard situation that forced me to search help. please help me what to do so that I can access grant from HIP so that to serve my life my kid.
