I am about to form my own activity since there aren't any positive jobs within the market.

Can anyone provide any ideas or web pages about how to find government grant money to start my own business? I've been looking via the internet but just about every website requires for money and I've been told by the unemployment office to stay away from the websites that ask for money for grant information as they are scammers. I'd personally be sincerely thankful for any advice.
