Verizon and LISC Offer Grants to Entrepreneurs of Color and Women-owned Businesses

As we hear about COVID-19 financial assistance available to small businesses, we’ll share here on our blog. Note that the information posted here is time-sensitive.

An investment of $2.5 million from Verizon is making it possible for LISC to begin offering critical relief and resiliency-building support to small businesses facing immediate financial threat because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding will go to make grants of up to $10,000, especially to entrepreneurs of color, women-owned businesses and other enterprises in historically under-served places who don’t have access to flexible, affordable capital.
