Grants that may be used to purchase a home and those that provide funds to help with other housing-related expenses are available from numerous government sources, all of which may be accessed via the Internet. Some purported housing grants, however, represent scams. Only those grants detailed on the websites of clearly identifiable government agencies are truly government grants. Other websites should be thoroughly examined to ensure that they represent a legitimate source prior to embarking on an effort to secure a grant through them.
