Grant Amount: $1,000
The TRANSFORM Business Grant supports entrepreneurs in systemically oppressed groups. Each grantee receives $1,000 to invest in their business or business idea. Grantees also participate in a customized, year-long business strategy and development program.
To be eligible for this grant, you answer the following questions:
The TRANSFORM Business Grant is designed to support individuals in systemically oppressed groups who are making social impact and demonstrate financial need. This includes, but is not limited to, BIPOC individuals, individuals who have a disability, formerly incarcerated individuals, and queer, trans, and nonbinary folks.
At this time, The TRANSFORM Business Grant is only open to applicants in the United States, regardless of citizenship or immigration status. Individuals and teams/groups are welcome to apply.
Preference is giving to individuals who demonstrate financial need, which we define as not being able to get the things you need with the resources that you have. We understand that financial need is going to look different for everyone.
Grant cycles this year are in March and August. Applications may be submitted between February 20th-March 20th for March review and July 20th-August 20th for August review. Applications submitted outside these windows will not be reviewed. This change is to ensure we are reviewing current needs for your business/idea.
