Grants for Small Businesses: July Edition

July Grants

Okay there is money out there to help grow our businesses for the FREE, but it requires some work. Each grant has different deadlines and requirements. Some are 1 minute applications and some are longer but I got yall!! 

Tip: Keep a running list of your responses so you can reuse them for different applications. Make sure to answer the questions carefully, PROOFREAD and have your business properly set up (yes they check everything). Start with the application that has a deadline and then work on the rolling date applications. Grants that give more money require more work such as submitting a video, but hey if that’s all they want for thousands of dollars in funding with having to pay it back, why not?!

If you did not take our Business Set Up Course where we work on the legitimization of your business and touch even further on how to WIN grants, this class is for you. Like seriously, you need this 3 hours of transformation okayyy?!

Have questions about funding: shhhh!!! I haven’t announced yet but I reopened slots for Business Consultations. Not only do I want to provide you with amazing products, but I want to help you grow the business of your dreams.
