Attention Small Business Owners in GREENE, UNICOI, CARTER, JOHNSON, HAWKINS, GRAINGER, & HANCOCK Counties!

As part of the continuing commitment to elevating the impact in rural America, OneLISC is inviting small business owners in rural locations across the country to apply for the LISC-Lowe's Rural Relief Small Business Grants program.

The next round of the Rural Relief Small Business Grants Program opens December 29th! This webinar will walk you through the application process and show you how to complete your application.

Who is eligible?
  • Applicants may apply for one business only and must be 18 years of age to apply. For business owners with multiple businesses, please complete this application based on your largest business owned. Each grant is limited to one individual/business.

  • Awards will be made to qualified businesses, and eligibility is based on accurate and complete submission. Priority will be given especially to entrepreneurs of color, women- and veteran-owned businesses and other enterprises in historically under-served places who don’t have access to flexible, affordable capital.

What are the size of the awards?
  • Grants will be made in amounts ranging from $5,000 to $20,000. LISC will use the funding to provide grants to businesses facing immediate financial pressure because of Covid-19.
What can the grant be used for?
  • Payables to include rent and utilities
  • Meeting payroll (to include the applicant)
  • Paying outstanding debt to vendors
  • Other immediate operational costs
Presented by:
  • Aundrea Y. Wilcox, Director of KOSBE and TSBDC Senior Business Counselor
  • Mark Bays, Director of TSBDC at ETSU

This event is FREE to attend however, pre-registration is REQUIRED.
