Yes. Every year the City of Natchez announces its SNAP (Special Needs Assistance Program) through the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas, offering to undertake health and safety repairs to those citizens that fall within the income, age, and/or disability requirements. Click on the following link to view the SNAP Criteria to see if you or your family member can apply. The criteria for income changes slightly year to year, so be sure to contact the Community Development Department (601) 445-7518 for any questions.
In most cases, to apply for a grant your organization must have a charitable designation from the Internal Revenue Service such as a 501(c)(3) exemption, however, some grants are available to for-profit entities.
If your organization is for-profit, you will find that federal grants generally prevent you from profiting from the activities funded with federal dollars. To find information on available federal grants now open to receive applications in which you or your organization may have an interest, follow the directions given on the federal grants website to obtain information and forms to apply for those grant opportunities for which your organization is an eligible recipient.
Not directly through the City, however the Southwest Mississippi Planning and Development District offers a variety of programs to help small businesses grow in Natchez-Adams County. Visit their website http://www.swmpdd.com/ for more information.
