In the News: Don’t Miss June Deadline Grants of up to $25,000


Meeting the deadline for grant applications is extremely important for small businesses. Grant funding can provide much-needed financial assistance to help small businesses grow and succeed. However, grant deadlines are often strict; missing a deadline can mean losing out on badly needed funds. To avoid this, you should carefully plan and submit their grant applications well in advance of the deadline.

Here are some tips for small businesses to meet grant application deadlines:

  • Start planning early. Don’t wait until the last minute to start working on your grant application. The earlier you start, the more time you will have to gather all of the required information and materials.
  • Read the grant application carefully. Make sure you understand all of the requirements before you start writing your application.
  • Get help from a grant writing professional. If you are not comfortable writing grant applications, consider hiring a professional grant writer to help you.
  • Submit your application on time. This is the most important tip! Make sure you submit your application by the deadline!

As 2023 reaches the midpoint, evaluate if your business goals require additional funding. If so, small business grants may help. There are many programs accepting applications this month. Grants from $1,000 to $25,000 are now available addressing a range of issues affecting small business owners. But don’t forget about the deadline, which is within the month of June as well as the end of the month.
