      Hi,

      Technically are different goverments iniatiatives:

      Grantor is oriented to give "Grants" to organisations. Those grants depends usually of a project proposal approval, such as: arts festival, house program, community support, build parks/garde,etc... Once approve (could be approved less money), this money is granted with/without providing bills. Each grants is different (different amount, different project).

      Social services is about individual receiving financial assistance from the government, such as, maternity leave, employment assistance  or sick leave. You don't submit a project, only an application and payment is usually the same for all individuals. However each month could be changed, based on changes on your conditions. At the same time, if you own money to the government (for example council rates), you payment will be reduced.

      Regards,

      Lyda
