Minority-owned businesses in Charlottesville have an opportunity to receive grant funding
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Minority-owned businesses in the Charlottesville-Albemarle area have an opportunity to be awarded some grant money.
The United Way and The Chamber’s Minority Business Alliance Partnership is selecting 10 businesses to receive $5,000 in grants.
“To be eligible, a business has to be owned by a minority, or at least 51% ownership by a minority,” said Barbara Hutchinson.
They are hoping these grants will be a stepping stone in helping businesses become financially stable.
“What this grant allows is a small business to perhaps become current on a past due bill, maybe add to their inventory, buy a piece of equipment that would make production quicker, and get things on shelves quicker,” Hutchinson said.
Applications close at noon on August 15.
