"This new grant opportunity will empower nonprofit organizations to provide women entrepreneurs in South Carolina with greater access to the training and technical assistance services they need to grow businesses, create jobs, and promote a stronger local economy in the state," said SBA Associate Administrator for Entrepreneurial Development Allen Gutierrez. "The funding will provide female entrepreneurs access to resources that help power their small business dreams."

The total amount is $75,000 each for up to two WBCs in South Carolina, which will cover the period from April 1, 2020 through Sept. 30, 2020.  Applications will be accepted on grants.gov and all applications for Funding Opportunity Announcement No. OWBO-2020-03 must be submitted online by the closing date. This grant opportunity will be open through March 11, 2020. 

"After successful outreach efforts held earlier this month, the SBA stands ready to expand the resources and services necessary for women-owned small businesses to have a greater impact in the state," said SBA South Carolina District Director Greg White

Eligible applicants for the grant must be private, nonprofit organizations with 501(c) tax-exempt status from the U.S. Treasury/Internal Revenue Service and must provide services in the state of South Carolina. This may include universities, foundations, chambers of commerce, or economic development institutions. 

Interested applicants must register and receive a certificate from SAM.gov as part of the grant application process. Questions about the WBC funding opportunity can be directed to the SBA Office of Women's Business Ownership (OWBO) at owbo@sba.gov.
