How long will grants be?

Up to one year. We are hoping that through our pilot grants this year, we will find programs and partners that we will be able to fund for multiple years.

How many applicants do you expect to fund?

Between 1-5 organizations.

What will the amount of the grants be?

It depends on the size and scope of the work, but the total grant amount per organization should not exceed $50,000. Please include amount of funding requested.

Why doesn’t the RFP ask for a specific grant amount?

The size of each grant will depend on the number and range of potential grants, the size of your overall organization or project budget, and the total amount of funds available.

Can we apply for a multi-organization grant?

Yes. Please identify one coordinating partner and primary contact and submit a joint proposal.

Can we apply if our organization is not only focused on supporting entrepreneurs through incubation?

If you are a multi-issue organization and you have a specific program focused on supporting entrepreneurs via education, mentorship, or community building, you may apply.
