Capital Region Urban Core MWBE Small Business Emergency Relief Grant
KeyBank Business Boost & Build powered by JumpStart recognizes the impact COVID-19 has had on small businesses and therefore is contributing $150,000 to the Capital Region Urban Core MWBE Grant with a focus on MWBE businesses.
This fund, administered by the Center of Economic Growth, is intended to bridge funding gaps while also providing wrap-around services in the form of technical assistance and 1:1 business consultation.
These resources will be provided by the KeyBank Business Boost & Build Capital Region partners (Center for Economic Growth, Pursuit and the SEED Program) or referrals will be made to trusted business professionals.
Eligible businesses would receive up to $5,000 in the form of grant money and would adhere to the guidelines set forth.
