It is possible to receive grants to cover moving expenses through the government or through private organizations. Some businesses offer financial assistance to employees who transfer to another location.
Local and state governments offer relocation grants through their social service departments to citizens who meet certain criteria. Many times these grants are intended for low-income families and victims of abuse or natural disasters. Charitable organizations occasionally offer moving grants to victims of abuse and homeless people. Employees who are transferring to another location should talk with their employer about financial assistance because some companies offer special relocation packages to their workers.
