Deadline in ONE WEEK: Elevate Together Small Business Grant

April 15

ELEVATE TOGETHER™ powered by Round It Up America is a nonprofit initiative designed to address systemic discrimination and historical racial disparities in business growth and profitability in Black and Hispanic communities. Through a partnership with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the National Urban League’s Entrepreneurship Centers, the initiative helps support Hispanic and Black small businesses with five or less employees. The ODP Corporation (parent company to Office Depot) is the initiative’s founding partner.

Thank you for your interest in applying for an Elevate Together small business grant. The deadline to submit your application is Friday, April 22, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Grant Criteria:

The applicant must be a small business with 5 or less full-time employees.
The applicant must be a majority Hispanic or Black-owned business with an active EIN number.
The business must have been in operation for at least 9 months from the date that you complete this form.
Qualifying cities/markets at this time include businesses in:

Fort Worth
Minneapolis/St. Paul
Typical grant amounts range from $5,000 – $10,000 per business. In addition to a cash grant, small business mentoring is an essential part of being an Elevate Together recipient. Small businesses selected to receive cash grants must participate in a mentor orientation and three mentorship sessions before receiving funding (though mentorship is intended to be longer-term).
