Attention Business Owners - The Merchants Fund Now Accepting Applications for Business Stabilization and Loan Matching Grants
This just in from our friends at The Merchants Fund . . .
TMF has two core grant making areas for businesses that have been legally established for at least three years in Philadelphia:
• Business Stabilization grants up to $10,000 to help small businesses remain stable, viable and grow in the face of economic opportunities and challenges.
• Business Loan Matches $10,001 up to $20,000 to match at least dollar for dollar accredited government programs and bank loans. Loan matches are last dollar which means you will have to spend your loan money before the match is available. We will not match past loans which have already been spent.
The next grant deadline for The Merchants Fund is Friday, September 14, 2012 (postmarked).
Requirement: You must call to have a preliminary discussion about your project and application. TMF staff can help you focus your request on projects which are more likely to be funded. The grant process is competitive and there is no guarantee of funding. If you do not undergo the screening process your application will not be accepted.
