Filled out my FAFSA... What next?

I am a single mom with 2 kids and i am trying to further my education. Iv'e been out of school for about 7 years, and my highest completed education level is my diploma.

Iv'e been out of school for about 7 years, and my highest completed education level is my diploma. I really have no idea what i am doing as far as attempting to get some kind of grant or financial aid and I am pretty much just playing this completely by ear. I filled out my FAFSA and sent it in online, and my status for the form is now "Processed", but there really isn't any other information than that. My EFC score is 0, which I think is a good thing?
Anyway, I guess my main question is where I go from here. Do I just wait for the schools I had the form sent to to call me and let me know what they specifically could offer me in lou of grants and loans, or will I be getting something letting me know my general qualifications? Is there anything else I should be doing in preparation for enrollment or any other kinds of additional paperwork I should fill out in an attempt to get additional grants?
I feel really ridiculous trying to call the schools directly at this point, since I'm not even sure if they have received my FAFSA. (It was just processed online today.) If anyone has any information on what I should do next, it would be appreciated; especially any info from single moms or other nonconventional students who have done this before.
Thx!
Update: p.s. I live in Ohio, I'm not sure if that makes a difference or not.
Update 2: i was just reading the answer below, and i hope this isn't considered "chat", but if i fill out all the required paperwork and take the tests and everything, would i be able to use that paperwork and any grants or loans that are awarded towards the next enrollment year?
