Recipient eligibility guidelines

This program is open nationally to certified diverse owned businesses, including Black, Hispanic or Latino-owned business, incorporated for at least 3 years with a minimum of $1 million in annual sales and with reasonable growth potential to reach $5 million+ in annual sales within the next few years. They also should have a specific business need such as cybersecurity, insurance, bonding, infrastructure costs or other third-party expenses related to securing new contracts, and successfully fulfilling them.

A pay-it-forward component is built into the initiative whereby businesses that receive funds and successfully secure new contracts are required to return the funds to the original pool to be awarded to the next wave of eligible diverse business. Businesses that do not gain new contracts as a result of the program can request to have the funds forgiven or repay the dollar amount they received at no interest.

Why become a corporate donor?

The program will increase the number of qualified diverse owned businesses, including Black, Hispanic or Latino suppliers prepared to serve corporations across multiple industries. As a corporate donor, you will be able to refer eligible businesses to the growth capital program and encourage them to apply. In addition, corporate contributions are income tax deductible.

Become a donor and join these corporations in the effort to reduce financial barriers to opportunity for diverse businesses.
