Women’s Foundation of Arkansas Creates Grant Fund for Women Owned Business Affected by COVID-19

Press Release

The Women’s Foundation of Arkansas has established Women Owned, a fund to provide assistance to women owned small businesses experiencing hardship due to COVID-19. Women, particularly minority women, have faced historical disadvantages to accessing the capital necessary for a business to thrive and in the face of unprecedented disruption to revenue streams and business models, WFA is prepared to champion these businesses in the form of $5,000 grants.

The fund currently holds $50,000 with an initial investment from WFA’s own grant pool and funding from the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation. WFA’s goal is for the fund to reach $100,000, which would provide assistance to 20 women owned small businesses throughout the state.

Apply

Applications for the first round of funding are open now and will close on Monday, April 13, 2020 at 12 PM (CT). Grantees receiving the first round of funding will be notified by Friday, April 17, 2020.
