NASE Members Receive $20,000 In Business Development Grants

Micro-business owners received a financial boost to their business in the third quarter, thanks to the National Association for the Self-Employed’s Business Development Grant Program. These NASE Members, with businesses as varied as a communications firm and a recycling service, were awarded a total of $20,000 for their businesses.

With the Business Development Grant program, NASE Members can apply for up to $5,000 for a specific business need such as the purchase of new equipment or software, or the funding of advertising, marketing materials and training. Since the program began in 2006, the association has awarded over $350,000 to member businesses.

The NASE Business Development Grant Program offers access to capital for micro-business owners who have a specific business need – but lack the finances to carry out that goal. The program was designed after an online NASE Member poll found that a majority of micro-business owners (57 percent) initially fund their businesses using personal savings, and many (40 percent) continue to use personal savings for ongoing financing.
