Grants for Black businesswomen! Who could use more money? We all can! I’ve received three grants in the past year, but it costs money to operate like this, with a team of Black creatives who are usually working on their dreams simultaneously. I take pride in that, but it costs, so I am always looking for grants to keep money flowing in. I also know we, as Black women, be on the grants when we can locate them, so why not share. This is a business blog and I want to be of value to you. I am always looking for more, so why not share these opportunities with you all.
So, boom, check it… And I am not being paid by these brands.
Businesswomen Grant #1:
Hidden Star, a 501(c)(3), offers a $3,250 GRANT. The application is very simple. It takes less than three minutes to complete since it is not very detailed. You must be a minority, but it doesn’t specify if you have to be a woman, so you can also pass this along to our male counterparts.
The winners will be announced on July 31, 2022. It does not say how many winners will be chosen, but to apply click here.
Businesswomen Grant #2:
BEG Energizing Small Businesses is the other grant you all can look into. This one is solely for Maryland businesses established before 2020. Applications close on August 26, 2022, and the winner announcement will be the week of October 17, 2022.
This is their second round of funding for the year, but I did not see mention of how the grant is or how many will be given out, but BGE is Maryland’s largest natural gas and electric utility.

I think I have a Maryland resident or two in this following, since this option is strictly for a Maryland-based business, but feel free to pass it along if you know of someone else who can use it.
