    I doubt there is any funding specifically for snow plowing. Your best avenue for funding will be the Small Business Administration. They can help you develop a business plan to take to a bank.

    If you're married, you might be able to get some funding by putting the business in her name, which might then qualify for women-owned enterprise funding.
