A grant is money awarded to finance a particular activity or group. Government grants can be defined as funding received from an external source that has a designated purpose, and has reporting or compliance requirements attached as conditions of acceptance. A grant is not usually as proscriptive as a ‘contract'. Grant funding does not have the level of specification usually applied to contracted funding. A grant may allow the recipient more flexibility in determining how it meets the goals it shares with the grant maker. This relative lack of proscription can be useful for both funder and recipient (eg when the funding is a contribution or part payment to support the work of an organisation where the Government does not seek a high level of control of the funded activity). This situation is more likely to apply to low-risk activities that are not seen as core government services being delivered by non-government organisations.
Grants are funds that the national government disburses directly to lower levels of government, corporations, non-profit organizations, and individuals. Some grants are given for specific purposes, requiring the recipients to meet certain conditions or requirements. In other cases, the grants may be used for whatever purpose the recipient deems important. For instance, a national government may make general-purpose grants to state and local governments to support their operations or may provide grants targeted at specific programs, such as the construction of a road or the purchase of school textbooks.
