Small Business Funding
Deadline: July 31, 2021
Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC)-owned businesses have been disproportionately affected by extended closures in the wake of the pandemic, as well as continued social unrest across the country. With that in mind, we have developed Comcast RISE – a program that stands for Representation, Investment, Strength, and Empowerment.
The Comcast RISE program invites eligible businesses to apply for various areas of support.
This program provides emergency assistance for eligible restaurants, bars, and other qualifying businesses impacted by COVID-19.
Various Grant Opportunities
Grants for woman-owned businesses
The HerRise Micro-Grant provides financial support to women of color that are often unable to secure funding for their small business. Each month a $500 micro-grant will be awarded to a small business owned by women of color.
Small business grants are useful for financing a particular small business need. Past recipients used their growth grants for computers, equipment, marketing materials, website creation and more.
