What is the Promise Grant program?

"This program offers competitive grants to small businesses with the most competitive business applicants having experienced economic hardship in 2022 and having received less than $10,000 in COVID-19 relief funding from the State of Minnesota. Applications to the Promise Act Grant Program for businesses located in the Northland Foundation’s service area in Northeast Minnesota will be accepted from March 26, 2024 through May 21, 2024. Businesses will be informed of whether they’ve received a grant in July 2024. A second round of grants is planned for 2025.
SBDC Consultants will be hosting Open Office Hours to assist business owners in the grant process over the next few months. Open Office Hours are designated times where businesses can work with a business consultant to walk through the Promise Act Grant application together. Only one business will be admitted into the meeting room at a time, ensuring that your business finances remain confidential.”
