2020 Black Owned Maine Business Grant
Please read the entire page.
Black Owned Maine would like to announce our August 2020 Business Grant. We are changing it up this month. Instead of only focusing on businesses going through hard times due to COVID-19, we are focusing on businesses that wish to rebrand, pivot, or innovate. Explain your plans and allow us to aid in your transformation. The BOM Business Grant will offer two weeks of free ad space on our website, a post on our social media accounts, and a one-time payment of $800 to a business that meets the following qualifications.
- A business at least 50% owned by a person of the African Diaspora
- Primarily, or exclusively, doing business in Maine
- A business with a clear plan for a re-branding, pivoting, or innovation strategy. You do not need to know all the fine details but we do want to see where your creative vision lies.
The deadline to apply is September 5th. We will select a winner and send a check by September 12th.
*All applicants must be currently listed in our directory, or have filled out an application to be listed. Please double check to make sure you are not already on our directory before submitting another form. The BOM directory submission form can be found at www.blackownedmaine.com/add-directory-listing
