One common struggle Latina and minority women entrepreneurs face is securing access to capital and funding their ventures. For many, grants are vital resources that help minority-owned businesses get started, expand, and grow. 

Today we’ve gathered a list of five upcoming fall grants for Latina entrepreneurs and minority business owners. See below for deadlines and requirements. 

5 Fall grants for Latina and minority women entrepreneurs

The grant was set up with one goal in mind: to honor the memory of a very special young woman, Amber Wigdahl, who died at just 19 years old — before realizing her business dreams. Today, WomensNet carries on that tradition, proudly giving away at least $30,000 every month in Amber Grant money. In recognition of the diversity of businesses owned by women, we’ve also expanded our grant-giving to include “Marketing Grants,” “Business Category Grants,” as well as two “$25,000 Year End Grants.”
