CHICAGO — The city is accepting applications for grants of up to $250,000 to help entrepreneurs on the South and West sides.
Applications for the Neighborhood Opportunity Fund will be accepted through April 9.
The fund has more than $4 million to help “small businesses, non-profits and cultural institutions on the West, Southwest and South sides,” according to the Department of Planning and Development.
The grants are available to entrepreneurs and non-profits that want to start or expand their work, according to application material.
The grants can be used for construction, buying land, renovations and more, as long as the project will build up a commercial corridor on the South or West sides. Grants of up to $250,000 will be available.
To find out if your project is eligible and to apply, go to the fund’s website.
