The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has opened its $150,000 grant opportunity for a new Women’s Business Center in South Carolina.
Up to two private, nonprofit organizations offering entrepreneurial development services to women focusing on socially and economically disadvantaged entrepreneurs within the state will be chosen from eligible applicants. To qualify, organizations should have a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education.
Applications are accepted until March 11.
"This new grant opportunity will empower nonprofit organizations to provide women entrepreneurs in South Carolina with greater access to the training and technical assistance services they need to grow businesses, create jobs and promote a stronger local economy in the state," SBA Associate Administrator for Entrepreneurial Development Allen Gutierrez said in a press release. "The funding will provide female entrepreneurs access to resources that help power their small business dreams."
