Consult with the local arts council
The best way to find grants for you is to consult with the local arts council. The arts council usually has some specific grants which are allotted from the state. You can apply for them and fund your photography business through it.
Subscribe to photography magazines
You need to have proper information of any grants that are being offered by the state or colleges. For this, get the subscription to some popular photography magazines. Most of the grants that are offered are advertised in these magazines and they will keep you updated regarding any such programs.
Inquire about grants in local colleges and universities
Another great way to find out about these grants is to visit or check the websites of the colleges and universities in your local area. There are many colleges that offer grants and scholarships from which you can benefit. You must get all the necessary information by contacting the college or university for any fellowships.
Apply for a membership in a local photography club
You can also apply for the membership in a local photography club. You can search for any clubs on the internet by adding your state or town in the list and inquire about any programs from them. Consult with the club members also as they will be able to provide better information regarding the situation.
Visit the PPA website
The ‘Professional Photographers of America’ website can also be checked on a daily basis for the information of any grants. The site is updated regularly and you will be able to find out any information you need.
