Grant Writer Request #07262020A

Primary Purpose:
I bought our small town flower shop in April of 2019. Since then we have had to completely gut the building due to major water damage. We have now found that all the electrical and HVAC needs to be updated. I finally have everything in the 1800's building gutted and now ready to start putting back together but have exhausted all of my reserves. I have been told by several friends that being a sole female owner of small business and the fact that I had to shut down for over eight weeks due to COVID, that I should be applying for grants. I have no clue where to start.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
Any additional monies would be absolutely great at this time. Estimates for the electric and HVAC work totals more than $14,000.
Project Description:
Provide your hourly rate for research and locating grants for: 2 hours per week for 5 weeks.   For a total of 10 hours.
I am open to suggestions on how many hours this project would take for a grantwriter.
