Business Grant Assistance

LISC Atlanta and Verizon are partnering to provide grants of up to $10,000 to businesses and non-profits facing immediate financial pressure because of COVID-19—especially entrepreneurs of color, women-owned businesses and other enterprises in historically underserved communities who don’t have access to flexible, affordable capital. The grant can be used for paying rent and utilities, meeting payroll, paying outstanding debt to vendors, and other immediate operational costs. The first round of grant applications is due on Saturday, April 4. It’s a quick turnaround, but the application is short! It is an anticipated that there will be another round of funding.
