Grants of up to $10,000 and in-kind services to Florida small businesses in eligible regions to promote economic viability. Funding may be used for a broad range of purchases and business development activities. Technical assistance is offered to grantees. Businesses must be located in District 3 of Miami-Dade County.

The Miami Dade County Mom And Pop Small Business Grant Program was created by Neighbors And Neighbors Association, Inc. in 1999 to provide financial and technical assistance to qualified small businesses that are approved for funding. This program has allowed small owned and operated businesses the opportunity to interact with local government under favorable conditions, and this relationship will ultimately bridge the gap between the two entities.

The program provides financial assistance to further the economic viability of recipients. Technical assistance is made available at no charge, to small businesses in order to create a better working and business environment, promote economic development opportunities, educate owners about various county-funded programs and projects, form/foster better working relationships among small business owners, retain and eventually create more jobs, offer the necessary training that small business owners so desperately need to become more efficient and competitive, etc.
