MGCCThe Massachusetts Growth Capital Corporation is pleased to announce that it is accepting grant applications for participation in the Fiscal Year 2021 (July 2020 – June 2021) Small Business Technical Assistance Grant Program (subject to state funding). 

Proposals for FY 2021 are due no later than 5pm on Tuesday, June 16, 2020.
 
 

About the Program:  The Small Business Technical Assistance Grant Program expands economic and entrepreneurial opportunity throughout the Commonwealth. The program is designed to complement and enhance traditional public and private small business assistance networks by providing technical assistance and training programs for underserved and/or disadvantaged businesses with 20 employees or less. It seeks to facilitate small business economic viability and improve their ability to secure capital. This state-funded program is managed by the Massachusetts Growth Capital Corporation. These grants are intended to supplement the organization’s current and anticipated funding and not to be the primary funding support.
 

Program Eligibility:  Massachusetts Growth Capital Corporation is seeking proposals for technical assistance and training grants to assist small businesses located in Gateway cities, and other under-resourced and low-moderate-income communities in Massachusetts. MGCC will accept applications from Massachusetts-based, not-for-profit organizations that currently provide technical assistance and training programs to small businesses and start-ups with an emphasis on under-resourced and low-moderate-income businesses and entrepreneurs.
 

Proposal Evaluation and Award Process:  Small Business Assistance Grants will be awarded by the Massachusetts Growth Capital Corporation. A review committee will review and recommend proposals for approval. Grants will be awarded on or before August 31, 2020. Date is subject to change.
