Apply for Resilience Fund Funding:
With the generous support of MEDC, NEI, Michigan-based foundations, corporate partners, individual donors, and in collaboration with the SBA, the Michigan Entrepreneur Resilience Fund has secured funds to provide recovery grants and loans to diverse entrepreneurs and small businesses from underrepresented groups in Michigan. This fund is intended to assist geographically and demographically disadvantaged individuals.
The Michigan Entrepreneur Resilience Fund will provide two primary avenues of funding:
- Grants: $1,000 – $5,000 grants to assist with reopening or pivoting your business.
- Microloans: $5,000 – $10,000 loans with a 1-3 year repayment period. Loans are fixed rate (8%), fully amortizing, term loans.
- Loan Forgiveness: Microloans that meet SBA eligibility requirements will receive loan payment forgiveness for the first six months of the loan’s term.
Donate to the MWF Resilience Fund:
In order to assist our women entrepreneurs in Michigan, we are setting up the Michigan Women Forward COVID-19 Resilience Fund. This fund helps MWF meet the needs of women-owned businesses and support special projects during this time.
Please consider helping women in your community by donating to the MWF COVID-19 Resilience Fund.
