New, small business grants?

My husband and I have a remodeling company that we started last year. We are finally getting the ball rolling with it and business is slowly picking up for us. We are both presently employed and do the business thing on the side (for now). We'd really like to get to the point where at the very minimum, he can quit his "day-job" and do the business full time. However, we need some start up capital! I'm interested in finding LEGIT places to apply for small business grants. I'm not looking for those widows of kings who live in Timbuktu offering us outrageous loans (we all know those scams now). I want places that are established and verifiable United States companies and preferably backed by the SBA. Does any one have any tips where we might look and how to get started? I also realize that we will need a business plan in order to get a grant even looked at - any places we could look for some good examples of those? Thanks in advance!

Unless your remodeling company has to do with childcare, basic research or alternative energy, there is no such thing as a grant.
