Short Term Grant Funds for Microenterprise Development: Grant Portal is Now Open!
WSMA has opened a short term grant opportunity to help Microenterprise Development Organizations (MDOs), Business Technical Assistance Providers, Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) serving organizations, and others that provide businesses with technical assistance, training, and/or microloans to businesses with 5 or fewer employees in urban and rural parts of Washington State!
These grants are intended to provide immediate funds for past expenses to stabilize these nonprofit organizations and support them now so that they can help the smallest businesses to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, steady their enterprises, prepare for economic recovery, and ensure they are ready to grow once the economy gets moving again.
