I've written before about Intuit's "Small Business United" program, through which it's offering a bunch of free software. Today I found out they also have a grant program, which could be a boon for anyone who has been struggling to find funding these days. The contest is open until April 24. Here are some details:

America's entrepreneurs now have more time to share their stories and advice for the chance to win $30,000 in business grants, plus free software and services. ... To enter the Small Business United grant competition, entrepreneurs can go to www.smallbusinessunited.com to share stories about their successes and challenges. ...

Finalists will be selected based on a combination of ratings from the community, quality and creativity. The ratings will account for 40 percent of the overall score, so easy-to-use tools are available to help participants share their entries with family, friends and colleagues.

By the way, if you're looking for funds, Inc. has a variety of other resources available. Check out our recently updated angel investor directory. And take a look at our Finance & Capital resource center as well.
