The purpose of this grant program is to help diversely owned small businesses (50 employees or less) and non-profit organizations own more of their assets, such as property, equipment, and technology. It is our belief that ownership allows for greater impact of one’s hard work and investment. We salute small business owners and non-profit organizers for their tremendous efforts to impact our local communities.

This program is made possible by a grant from Wells Fargo’s Open for Business Fund. Additional details of the program will be uploaded and added  as new updates continue to evolve.

HIGHLIGHTS

Wells Fargo Open for Business Grant Launch

HOUSTON

The Houston Fund for Social Justice and Economic Equity announced today the launch of the Open for Business Grant portal to distribute $20 million to Houston-area diverse small business and non-profit organizations. Beginning Tuesday August 9 through 23, business owners will have the opportunity to apply for grants ranging between $10,000 and $65,000.

“Opening this portal is an incredible step towards the progress we initiated in May 2021 when we established the Houston Fund for Social Justice and Economic Equity. We are providing access to much-needed funds for Houston’s small businesses of color and non-profits that focus on leveling the playing field. It will empower their work, allow them to thrive, extend their reach, and support innovation,” said Mayor Sylvester Turner. “Thanks to corporate partnerships, we have come a long way in a short time and are now funding foundational change in the Houston community.”
