The initial roll out will see businesses in Atlanta, Chicago, Charlotte, Dallas, and Los Angeles eligible for Funding, with new locations promised for next year.

Safe Trade Binbary Options author, Saqib Iqbal said, “It’s no secret that the pandemic has impacted businesses of all sizes and, with the economy continuing to be volatile, more support will be very welcome. Bank of America is known for providing various funding options for small businesses and we’re delighted to see that they’re rolling out targeted assistance.

“Their Small Business Grant program will ensure more funding is easily accessible for women and minority-owned businesses so that they can compete on equal terms. Female-led businesses are on the rise[1] and minority-owned businesses account for around 19%[2] of all US firms so they are of great importance to local communities. Ensuring equitable access to finance goes a long way to helping those businesses to flourish.”

The Funding Program will see grants of up to $25,000 offered to help small businesses overcome the down payment barrier. This can make a substantial difference to cash flow and free up resources for small businesses to focus on operations.
