The government provides financial assistance to many people. They don’t have much in common, except for one thing: They all applied for the aid packages they receive.
The government requires that people apply for government grants they’d like to receive. All grants involve an application process, so if you haven’t applied for a grant, you will not be eligible to receive one.
Moreover, you never have to pay a fee in order to receive a “free” government grant. The government does not ask people to pay a “processing fee”—or any other kind of fee—in order to receive a grant that has been awarded to them.
