Q. public statutes
I'm looking for grant money, where do I find public statutes, or what request do I need to make to obtain them /
For finding grant money, try the page Government Benefits, Grants and Loans. First you choose whether you want housing assistance, help with bills, food assistance, etc. -- and you'll be connected with the kinds of agencies that serve those needs.
For finding public statutes (i.e. laws passed by Congress), there are two convenient paths. First, Congress.gov has a Public Laws link from their homepage, and you can literally read laws as they are passed. There is a also a U.S. Code link, which presents all the laws currently in force (old laws are struck out of the Code). Even nicer versions of these are available online through govinfo.gov's Bills and Statutes pages. Lastly, you can also find public statutes at your nearest Federal Depository Library.
I hope this information is useful.
