BET Announces $100,000 Microgrant Program For Harlem Businesses & Nonprofits

BET, the nation’s leading provider of quality content from Black creators and the champion of Black content and culture.

It began on, Tuesday, March 1st, when BET first started accepting applications for its Harlem Entrepreneurial Microgrant Initiative –  a $100,000 program created to provide support to small Harlem businesses in partnership with the 125th Street Business Improvement District (BID) and the Apollo Theater.

Established in 2020 in response to the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on Black communities, Harlem Entrepreneurial Microgrant Initiative is now on its third round of microgrants, and 10 local Harlem businesses and nonprofits will receive a $10,000 grant from BET to support their continued recovery from COVID-19.

Applications will be accepted from March 1 – March 31, 2022.
