    Hello michael:

    Correction. You ARE a felon. You'll be one forever. There ain't nothing ex about it.

    Because you're a felon, you're not precluded from getting any grant that anybody can get. There aren't, however, any special grants for felons. You aren't eligible for any special help in opening a business either.

    There IS a place where felons can get bonded, but that's the only place that I know of to get ANY kind of relief, and it ain't much.

    And there are not just a lot of grants out there to start a business. If for example right now in one city in Kansas that was destroyed by storms last year there several groups of money together for business that will hire over 40 people within a year.

    And normally the money will be only a part, so you will always need your own personal funding.

    Michael don't listen to any negativity. Write your Governor and your president. Where there is a will there is a way! Be persistent. Seal or expungment. Bonding is an option. But never give up. The devil is a lier! You lying wonder! From soon to be ex- felonist!
