COVID Grants for Artists and Black Business Owners

I created two grants, one for artists (https://www.annuityfreedom.net/financial-literacy/artists/) and one for Black or minority business owners (https://www.annuityfreedom.net/financial-literacy/black-grants/).

 

Both are a combination marketing + micro grant. There is not currently a cap on the number of monthly marketing grantees. We're currently providing (1) $100 micro-grant each month per program.
