    Hi I'm new to Lawnsite. It looks like a great place.
    I've been in business for 5 years and need to add a third
    crew next year. Do any of you know of any grants out there
    for us? Thanks!!!!

    check with your state's gov's office. If there are grants, they'll know. But given your situation, you might want to look for a loan rather than grant. It's harder to get a grant when you're already established. Plus it's a lot of work getting a grant with all the red tape.

    Maybe try greensuccess.com ?

    I have in the past, and still sometimes recieve grants for lawn work. I do the work, and the customers come running out giving me a President Grant! Sorry, I just had to say it.

    Be very careful when using gov't money. Once their in, they are always in. You get into a lot of red tape.
