U.S. Small Business Administration: Women’s Business Center – Initial Phase Grant

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 12 February 2018

U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is currently inviting applications for its Women’s Business Center – Initial Phase Grant with an aim to provide funding for up to seven existing private non-profit organizations (host organizations) of a Women’s Business Center (WBC) that have met their performance goals for the past 2 years and is in good standing with both performance and compliances to start a new, community-based WBC.

The Women’s Business Center (WBC) Program was established by the Women’s Business Ownership Act of 1988 (Public Law No. 100-533) as the Women’s Business Demonstration Pilot, providing grants to private non-profit organizations to aid and encourage the development and growth of small women owned businesses through long-term training and counseling. The program was expanded and made permanent in 2007 when the WBC Sustainability Grant Program, established in 1999, was replaced with the WBC Renewal Grant Program.

The mission of the WBC Program is to act as the catalyst for providing in-depth, substantive, outcome oriented business services to women entrepreneurs, both nascent and established businesses, a representative number of which are socially and economically disadvantaged.
