    I know there are at least a few people here who are promoting grants through CPA offers but the government is going after some of the companies offering grant help as they are saying its a scam.

    If you're promoting grants through Adwords or other ads just be sure to watch your campaigns so the advertisers don't stop them while you are still paying for Adwords clicks. Here's a news article on it.

    Stimulus grant scams. Since the $787 billion stimulus bill became law in February, dozens of websites have popped up offering advice for a fee on how to get government grants on everything from small business initiatives to paying off student loan debt. The BBB has received hundreds of complaints about sites like federalgrantsolutions.com, which billed consumers $70 a month on their credit cards for info they thought was free. First, know that the government doesn?t hand out grants for paying off personal debt and grants are usually given to non-profits. If you want to know how to apply for a government grant for a non-profit or small business initiative, that info is readily available for free at grants.gov and sba.gov.

    It is another case of buyer beware and too many affiliates abusing customers.

    Hint: Grant offers are popular now, something you "might" want to promote. How do i know this? well... if people are complaining about some of them getting possibly shut-down, then they must have been making money with the offers. People don't complain about offers they are not making money with. ;)
