Minority Business Alliance & United Way of Greater Charlottesville

The United Way of Greater Charlottesville and the Minority Business Alliance of the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce are pleased to offer our fourth round of Minority Enterprise Grants! Through this partnership, we hope to stimulate and support small minority-owned businesses located in the Greater Charlottesville community. We recognize that one barrier to success for small businesses is the lack of access to affordable capital. This program is intended to provide a financial lift to the recipients as they pursue success.

Applications for the FY2024 Minority Enterprise Grant cycle are now closed. A total of $50,000 will be awarded in ten grants. Businesses will be able to use the grant funds for equipment acquisition, inventory, and operating expenses including business promotion.
