To find job placement, job search support or paid internship opportunities for widowed women contact your local career center. To get a financial support for a widower to learn a specific type of training or to attend college, contact the financial aid office of the training facility or college that they want to attend.
There are a few grants available for widowed women to start a business. To get started go the Small Business Administration office or SCORE program website at www.score.org. If the widower is not eligible for any grants they may be eligible to receive a government assisted loan.
Financial assistance through a government agency for a widower will depend on her income level. However there are foundations that are set up to help a widower get on their feet and support their family, such as the The Liz Logelin Foundation, The Ted Lindeman Outreach Foundation and The For Kids Foundation.
Widowed spouses of a veteran may be eligible for assistance through the VA. Some assistance include housing reimbursements, medical care, monthly compensation and educational expenses.
Many grants are not specifically for widows but due to the widows situation they fall under the required qualifications.
