Are you an Arkansas resident seeking a grant for your woman-owned business? If you’ve done research, you know there are plenty of sites that either look sketchy… or are complicated government sites that typically only help women-owned businesses in very narrow fields.
We’re much different. WomensNet focuses on small businesses and start-ups and doesn’t prioritize one industry over another. We’ll point you in the direction of real grants, loans, and other funding for your business. Of course, you’ll still have to roll up your sleeves and put in the time and work to get a grant or other funding. But if you put forth the energy — the rewards could be tremendous.
Take a few minutes to start with our Amber Grant for Women. Business women from Arkansas (and all over North America) can apply for our monthly $2,000 Amber Grant. If you’re selected, you’ll automatically be entered into our year-end $25,000 Amber Grant. That’s a grand total of $27,000 in grant money this year — and it could be going to you.
After you’ve applied for our grant, feel free to browser the resources below. There are folks in Arkansas waiting to help women business owners just like you.
WomensNet launched the Amber Grant in 1998 to honor the memory of an ambitious young woman who died at the age of 19, before she could realize her entrepreneurial aspirations. Today, these grants help women like you fulfill the dreams that Amber could not.
Every month, WomensNet judges award one or more Amber Grants of $2,000 each. Then, at the end of the year, one of those grant recipients is selected to receive the $25,000 Amber Grant.
By telling us your story. There are no lengthy, complicated documents to complete; just answer a few questions about your business. But hurry—applications are due by the end of the month for the next $2,000 Amber Grant.
You’re in luck. We’ve done hours of research and compiled a list of the 20 best small business grants available for women today—and we’d love to share it with you!
