Grant For Incorporated Travel Agency

I am seeking a grant that will allow for the purchase of telephone, supplies, equipment (computer, monitor) and pay a one year salary (part time) to one person to assist us in researching and preparing travel quotes.   I have just started to receive inquires and reservations from the public, however, the sales is not enough to cover the biggest expenses, supplies and telephone.  I have attempted to find government grants but have been unable to make heads or tails of the process. Right now, there are two people that have been working without pay for several years, and now that we are starting to get inquiries and reservations, it appears that I will have to close prematurely because we do not have a large clientele and dollars that cover our expenses.  I have been able to set up the company with all of the necessary vendors, certifications and associations that will help me to build a more solid base, however, there is that need for money to get the right push.  I am seeking at least a grant that will give us $35,000.00.  There will not be a problem with the necessary reports being prepared as a follow-up.  I appreciate anything that you can do for me.

Thank You

I am a retired senior citizen who decided to start my own home based Travel Agency while I was still working a full time job and prior to retiring for the second time.  The company is set up as a corporation with most of the important memberships and associations necessary to provide travel to the public.  It is managed by myself and daughter on a full time basis.  Both my daughter and myself  have attended travel school and became  specialists and certified with several cruise lines and the Convention and Visitor's Bureau in Las Vegas.  Shortly after the start up of this business, I became seriously ill, requiring surgery.  For the next couple of years I struggled with poor health and the full time job leaving the home based business as a low secondary base.  Now I am retired for good and need to make this business viable, however, I need the funds to build this enterprise into something different by catering mostly to the Mature Adult.  Travel is one way to embrace culture, beauty and attain everlasting memories of good experiences.  Our slogan is "from dreams to reality".
