Are You Eligible for This Commercial Vehicle Grant?

Last month, Progressive Insurance unveiled its Driving Small Business Forward grant program to support Hispanic entrepreneurs. The grant will provide Hispanic-identifying entrepreneurs with funding for the purchase of a commercial vehicle for their business. This $250,000 grant program is in collaboration with the business accelerator, Hello Alice.

According to McKinsey & Company, Hispanic entrepreneurs start more businesses per capita than any other racial or ethnic group in the United States. However, they face more challenges getting loans or capital from the investment community. With the Driving Small Business Forward grant program, Progressive hopes to support these owners with funds to take their businesses to the next level.

“Progressive understands the unique challenges entrepreneurs face, and is committed to providing solutions to help. (We) hope this program will make an impact for the selected business owners and help propel their small business journey.”

Karen Bailo, Commercial Lines President at Progressive Insurance
