Verizon Small Business Recovery Fund (Grants)

About the Program

Nonprofit organization, Local Initiatives Support Corporation, received a $2.5 million investment from Verizon that will be used to offer grants of up to $10,000 to help small businesses fill urgent financial gaps until they can resume normal operations or until more permanent financing becomes available. The first round of grant applications were collected from March 25th – April 4th, with a second round to be released mid-April. Applications will be reviewed and then entered into a lottery.



LISC will use the Verizon funding to provide grants of up to $10,000 to businesses facing immediate financial pressure from COVID-19, especially:

  • Entrepreneurs of color
  • Women-owned businesses
  • Other enterprises in historically underserved communities who do not have access to flexible, affordable capital


Use of Funds

Funds can be used for paying rent and utilities, meeting payroll, paying outstanding debt to vendors and other immediate operational costs.
