when can i find a real grant i dont have to pay back and actually claim it

The government offers different types of financial assistance, including grants. You are not required to pay back a grant, but there are very few grants available to individuals. Most grants are awarded to universities, researchers, cities, states, counties, and non-profit organizations. Loans are generally the best option for individuals. You are required to pay back a loan, often with interest. 

Benefits.gov can help you identify loans and sources of financial assistance for which you may be eligible and tell you how and where to apply.

Find other benefits, grants, and financial aid available from the government.
