Knowing what financial aids are available is a great start to a better life, and even if you are just curious there are people to ask in our single mom forums. Also remember when planning to apply for any federal child support, grants or programs, you will need to keep in mind any expenses you may have, be they living costs or childcare costs, your job situation and income, and also the cost of any potential education you may be requiring financial assistance with.

There is a wide range of benefits available to single mothers, and you may be surprised as to what support you may be entitled to:

Financial aid for your child

Childcare Support:
The government has various programs in place providing help for single parents and their children, from providing basic needs such as food and water, to education and support.

Housing Assistance:
Providing a roof over your child’s head has its own set of challenges and problems, and this is recognised by the government. Financial assistance is available through various programs, and by eligibility.

Financial aid for yourself

Financial Aid:
There are a number of federal based programs that can assist those on a low income.

Education Grants:
Grants for education are provided on a needs-based system, and unlike loans, grants do not need to be paid back.

Scholarship Funds:
Going back to school/college is a great way to start a better living, to gain the qualifications needed for jobs paying a higher income. Whether you are looking to start, or are already enrolled on a course, there may be financial aid available.

Loans for Single Mothers:
Sometimes loans are the easiest solution to short-term money problems, and it pays to know what to look for.

It is easy to think that you are alone and there may not be any financial aid available to you, but you may be surprised as to what reading through our advice, and learning about the different types of the support that are available to you, can do for your quality of life, for both you and your child. There are people to turn to, and many people in the same situation. Learning about these and finding ways to overcome any problems is the first step to a better life.
