Starting and managing a small business in Missouri is not an easy task. Over $88,809,106,000.00 US dollars are paid to employee salaries/payroll alone in the state of Missouri and more than 32,931 businesses declare bankruptcy every single year. Although the federal government does not publically provide grants for starting and expanding a business, in Missouri, some small business grants are given to business owners to start and grow their ventures, and grant recipients do not have to pay back the funding from government. Therefore, it makes sense to look into small business grants as one of your sources to fund your business.
