BIPOC & Immigrant Business Grant Now Available
Project Better Together has partnered with the Community Foundation of Johnson County to assist in the administration of the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color and Immigrant Owned Business Grant. Applications open Monday, July 6th, and close on Monday, July 27th.
The purpose of Project Better Together’s Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and Immigrant Owned Business Grant is to provide short-term funding in the form of a one-time grant to BIPOC and immigrant-owned private businesses in Johnson County, Iowa who were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and need help with both short-term needs and long-term recovery efforts to continue their business. This fund is intended to help businesses that have not been able to access or have been declined local, state, or federal relief funds, or that need additional support to weather this crisis. It will be focused on businesses that may be dealing with additional barriers including but not limited to language, general business knowledge, etc. and from under served communities. The grant may range from $1,000 to $5,000 depending on need and number of applicants. Learn more about eligibility requirements and the application process. Apply Here.
