Starting March 1 and continuing until March 31, 2022, the Harlem Entrepreneurial Microgrant Initiative will be accepting applications from local businesses and nonprofits to receive a $10,000 from BET. A total of 10 Harlem based companies will be the recipients of these grants in a continued recovery effort from COVID-19. Recipients of the grants will be notified the week of April 24, 2022.

Not only are these small business grants helping the recovery efforts, but they are also honoring the spirit of Don Cornelius, Soul Train’s innovator and pioneer.

So far, the Harlem Microgrant Initiative has awarded 40 Harlem based recipients in 2020 + 2021, and hopes to continue their efforts well into 2022 and beyond.
