Small Business Grants for Women in Georgia

Small business grant opportunities for women in Georgia are rare. But we offer THREE every month.

A Google search for “women’s startup business grants” will bring up a long list of sites. But most either look like scams or complicated government (Small Business Administration) sites that ask a ton of financial and personal questions. Not the websites women small-business owners are going to find much help…

We’re truly here to help women like you.

Apply now for your chance at a $10,000 women’s business grant

A simple place to start is with our Amber Grants for Women. Business women from Georgia (and all around America) are eligible to apply. Our judges award three $10,000 Amber Grants every month – so you can apply when you’re ready.

If you win one of the three $10,000 grants, you’re automatically eligible to win a year-end $25,000 Amber Grant.  So you can end this year with $35,000 in grant money for your women-owned business.  Not bad for the time it takes to fill out our simple, hassle-free application.

Georgia native and businesswoman, Stephanie Dean, founder of Step Stitches, won $35,000 in Amber Grant money in 2021.

WomensNet helps you find legitimate grants, loans, and other funding for your business venture. Yes, you’re still going to have to put in some hard work and time. But if you’re serious about getting your business to the next level, you’ll find our site super helpful.

Does WomensNet Offer Amber Grants to Women In My State?

Yes!! We've been offering business resources and grants to women in all 50 states (and Canada) since 1998. We have three different $10,000 Amber Grant winners EVERY month... Plus at the end of the year, each Amber Grant winner for that year is eligible for an additional $25,000 grant!

How Does It Work?

Submit your application. Our WomensNet judges review every application. Then we announce the three $10,000 Amber Grant winners the following month by the 23rd. At the end of the year, we award THREE more $25,000 grants -- chosen from our previous monthly grant winners for this year. That means you have the opportunity to receive $35,000 from WomensNet by filling out one two-question grant application.

How Do I Apply?

Simple. By telling us your story. There are no lengthy, complicated documents to complete. Just answer two questions about your business. But hurry—applications are due by the end of the month for all three of this month's $10,000 Amber Grant opportunities.

Six steps you should take when looking for a business grant:

1. Analyze your organization's needs. Make sure you have a solid understanding of the:
  • Problem or need you want to address
  • Audience that will benefit from your product or service
  • Kind and amount of support you need
  • Resources and commitment your group brings to the project
  • Potential and prospective partners in the community
2. Research various types of foundations. Learn the operational differences between:
  • Corporate foundations
  • Civic foundations
  • Private foundations
3. Look for funding matches. Identify funders who:
  • Are able and likely to fund projects in your geographic area
  • Share a similar core mission or goals
  • Have already supported similar ventures or projects
4. Compile a list of prospects. Group them in two ways:
  • By Geographic Location (city, state, region)
  • By field of interest or program subject
5. Review and refine your list. Eliminate prospects that DON’T FUND:
  • In your state
  • Your type of organization
  • Your subject
  • The type of support you need
  • Your size project
6. Select the most appropriate funding prospects. Research them in detail:
  • Contact them directly to request annual reports and other publications
  • Search print and online media to identify projects that received grants in the past
  • Ask former grant recipients for advice and why they felt they were successful over other applicants
