Fresno, CA (KFSN)-You can scroll through hundreds of grant options and apply on one site. grabgrants.com..

This website was launched about two weeks ago with the mission of serving small businesses.

“Millions of dollars are subsidized each year, and I don’t think many people know they qualify for a lot of free capital and opportunities,” says Archie Billier.

Last year, the 22-year-old developed a site algorithm with two classes of calculus and turned it into a summer project.

He says that because many friends and family are business owners, he sees some of their struggles to find and apply for grants in person.

He wants to level the competition for small business owners and minority communities who don’t know where to go.

“I really want to help diversify entrepreneurship in the future,” he said.

Resources are free.

All you have to do is create an account and search for keywords such as the type of business you own or the city you live in to see what support is available.

“They have the opportunity to access it for free,” says Villiers. “I don’t like the concept of grant creators. It’s kind of a goal because it’s like eliminating the notion of who the grant is for!”

Plans are underway to expand the search capabilities.
