The Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), one of the country’s largest social enterprises supporting projects and programs to revitalize communities and bring greater economic opportunity to residents, is providing grants to small businesses to help them keep functioning and remain vital facets of their local economies at this difficult time.
These grants are designed to support small businesses and enterprises across the country that have been affected by COVID-19, especially those in underserved communities, including entrepreneurs of color, women-owned businesses, and veteran-owned businesses that often lack access to flexible, affordable capital.
Applications will be reviewed based on criteria designed to prioritize particularly challenged businesses, and the final grantees will be randomly selected from the top scoring applicants.
The deadline for submissions is this Monday, September 7 at 11:59pm ET.
