While the days of big PPP loans and discounts are over, for now, small business grants are given across the country year round. The latest business grant news reveals Dove Chocolate offerings for women entrepreneurs as well as a Los Angeles Job Creators Quest Grant, South Dakota FAST Launch Grants, Avon Lake Small Business COVID-19 and others.
The advantage of these types of grants is that they help businesses and entrepreneurs in a given category or segment. This not only identifies and fixes a particular problem, but it also highlights the need to help this problem through government and other sources. The Dove Chocolate grant is a prime example. The brand has great reach, provided this grant features many female entrepreneurs who otherwise would not get the recognition they deserve. And being on the company’s website or on the social network could be all the recognition they need to receive funding from investors or lenders.
If you are a small business owner looking for a grant, look for it online, with the SBA, as well as your local chamber of commerce.
