$25K in grants from Bank of America and ARPA-related programs

The good news for small business owners is that there are many grants available, and this includes American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) programs that are still seeking financial aid.

A good point to remember about scholarships is that they come in a wide variety of programs and funding levels. Even though it would be nice to get the largest grant available, that’s not always possible. Applying for small grants in your community with programs that aim to help small business owners is a great way to get your feet wet about how grants work. Here are some grants you can apply for now.

Bank of America is kicking off this grant round with a program offering up to $25,000 through the Small Business Down Payment Grant Program. Other grants include an ARPA-led initiative of $250,000 to $9 million in funds dedicated to direct financial aid and other support services. Another program aims to help entrepreneurs with a $15.7 million fund in grants to address a range of pandemic-related problems. Read more about the rest of the grants:
