Communities, businesses, and families are facing a host of uncertainties in the months ahead. In our work with small businesses, we see a particular need for helping businesses pivot product lines or sales models to place them on surer footing to weather this storm.
Consider this grant if your business needs a website or materials for diversifying your product line. Funds could also be used to hire a consultant to help you develop a new social media marketing plan, or invest in supplies or infrastructure that allows you to operate your business during the pandemic.
We are prioritizing applications that focus on innovative business models or new products and services to build resilient systems in the changing world.
Before you get started, here is a bit more about the application and process:
