Diverse Business Assistance Grant Program 

The $37.5 million Diverse Business Assistance Grant Program will provide support to ethnic and diverse chambers of commerce and other collaboratives that provide technical assistance and services to businesses that have historically had limited access to capital and are owned by members of communities disproportionately affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Diverse Business Investment Grant Program 

The Diverse Business Investment Grant Program will provide an additional $37.5 million to community development financial institutions (CDFIs), for grants to small and micro-businesses that are owned by members of communities that historically have had limited access to capital and those that were disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.

The 3,000 Black Businesses Challenge will take place over the next three years while engaging and support existing black and diverse businesses. The need for black business startups, and existing businesses to receive technical assistance and capacity building assistance is as imperative as any need that can be identified. This strategy is “Smart” “Innovative” & “Immediately Active”. We will host each year a statewide black business expo that will take place during Marketplace – the Governor’s Conference on Minority Business each year.
