Although most of our heritage partners are nonprofits, many of our community supporters are local businesses, and so we wanted to share this special grant opportunity from BGE with our valued friends.
BGE Energizing Small Business Grants Program
Eligible businesses located in BGE’s service area have three opportunities to apply for BGE Energizing Small Business Grants of up to $20,000. To be eligible, a business must have between two and 25 employees, less than $7 million in annual revenue, a demonstrated need for support, a strong plan for moving forward, and be in good standing with the state of Maryland.
- Round 1: January 20 – March 3, 2021
- Round 2: May 5 – June 16, 2021
- Round 3: September 1 – October 13, 2021
Grant recipients will be selected via a panel and will be notified within 30 days of each round’s close.
BGE Energizing Small Business Grants will prioritize companies operated by historically underrepresented groups that are pivoting their business in response to the pandemic.
Apply by sharing how a grant would provide economic relief and help grow your business. For more information, please visit bge.helloalice.com.
