Hispanic Heritage Month: Grant funding for Latino and Hispanic small businesses

Latino and Hispanic entrepreneurs are starting small businesses at a faster rate than other groups, accounting for 44% of growth rate in the past decade. However, disparities in access to capital remain, particularly how Latino-owned businesses have been able to raise capital during the pandemic. This is why access to grant funding is critical to help them start, maintain, and grow their businesses. We have compiled a list of grant opportunities available to Latino and Hispanic businesses in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, which spans from September 15 to October 15.
