Grants, Financial Aid and the like

Help!!!!! No, I really mean it. Help!!!

The girl and I are trying to figure out how to get her financial aid, in the form of grants, regular aid and whatever we can get...

And I don't know how to do it. Some background info..

I'm disabled. No one in the immediate family has a college degree (I tried, but stuff happened and no degree). We are poor. Her grades aren't great, but they aren't terrible either (thus she doesn't qualify for a scholarship). She is going to a 2 year college first, than would like to go to a University. We get no child support(not sure if that matters). Hmm.. not sure what else is needed.

Seriously, bloggyland I need help. I don't know where to look, I don't know which ones she would qualify for, how many can she apply for and all that jazz..

If you can help me out, please send me an email to wisprnsoul@cox.net (that's wisprnsoul @ cox dot net) Please send help! I realize that this is a busy time right now, but maybe after Christmas you can help me out??

Isn't there a financial aid office at the school that has information? Should at least be able to get that state thing, might have to apply through the school.

The school has been no help to me. I have tried a few times to get help. I was told to apply to FAFSA and was told that it was free, but it turns out it's 80$!! And it has to be done by the first of the year..

I spoke to someone today and he told me to try, grants.gov so next week I'm going to give that a try.

Thanks for the advice!
