Helping Minority-Owned Micro-Businesses Weather the Storm

To help ethnic minority-owned micro-businesses cope with the economic impact of COVID-19, the Ethnic Minority Emergency Grant Initiative is being launched with a total of $2 million to be made available to 1,000 Wisconsin micro-businesses.

A business may apply for a one-time grant of $2,000 for short-term operations assistance through Wisconsin’s Collective Ethnic and Diverse Organizations. Applicants will be subject to underwriting, and grant recipients will be required to submit a report indicating how the funds were used. Applications will be accepted from May 18-26, 2020.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR THE EMEG?

  • Located in Wisconsin. The owner can reside in another state. 
  • At least 51% ethnic minority-owned.
