You should consult a “grant writer”. Getting a grant can be very difficult. There is an entire field of professionals who write grant proposals for a living. This is because it is not as simple as asking for a grant. Just like having someone do your taxes, it is money well spent. Thinking you can work as a trainer/instructor and handle all of the other aspects of running a business as well as anyone else can, is the same thinking people have that they can exercise on their own just as well as having an instructor lead them. More often than not, hiring a professional saves money and time. Both of which are limited commodities in business and life. After the first time I had someone do my taxes for me, I vowed never to do them myself again. I spend that time now making more money than I spent on the service and having time left for me to workout as well.
