Grants totaling $225,000 will be available for organizations that work with immigrant business owners and entrepreneurs. Eligible organizations are invited to develop proposals for programs that promote business opportunities for this population. Proposals should enable immigrant entrepreneurs to start, operate and expand their businesses in New York City. There will be two funding rounds. In the first round, proposals will be judged on several criteria including, but not limited to, feasibility, applicability, scalability, and sustainability. Seed money will be provided to five finalists to pilot their program and create a business plan. During the pilot period, finalists will run their proposed pilot and refine their business plan. In the second round, one winner will be selected to receive funding of $100,000 and promotional services to further scale their program.
