Hello. My name is John and I'm new to the site.
I'm looking to do some research to find a grant for an idea I'm developing, called a street newspaper.
Street newspapers are a global phenomenon. These papers are predominantly reported, written, published, produced, marketed and sold by homeless or previously homeless people. Homeless vendors purchase copies of the newspaper at a reduced price, say 25 cents, then sell them on the street for a profit, say $1.00. the vendors keep the money. It is a non-profit business venture. The point is to give homeless people a 'hand up, not a hand-out.'
Does anyone have an idea where to begin to find funding for something like this? Has anyone done something similar?
