Minority Business Alliance & United Way of Greater Charlottesville

Minority Business Enterprise Grant Partnership
Apply Now!

The United Way of Greater Charlottesville and the Minority Business Alliance of the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce are pleased to offer our third round of Minority Enterprise Grants!. Through this partnership, we hope to stimulate and support small minority-owned businesses located in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County. 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.

The United Way is now accepting applications through July 1, 2022, for the FY2023 Minority Enterprise Grant Opportunity. 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.
