Doing a Google search for women-owned business grants can be arduous. And even when you do come across sites — they can be complicated government sites (like the Small Business Administration). Or they might be sites that look kind of spammy.
Now for the good news: WomensNet offers business grants to women in Pennsylvania (as well as all across the United States). We call it our Amber Grant for Women and it’s awarded by our judges every month. The monthly grant is $1,000. If you’d like to share your story, you can apply for the Amber Grant right now. And if you win our $1,000 monthly grant, you’re eligible for our year-end Amber Grant of $10,000. So just a few minutes on our site could land you $11,000 in grant money by the end of the year. Not bad.

Every month, WomensNet judges award one or more Amber Grants of $1,000 each. Then, at the end of the year, one of those grant recipients is selected to receive the $10,000 Amber Grant.
