Business Oregon has opened a Request for Grant Applications (RFGA) for the Economic Equity Investment Program, created to promote durable economic advancement among historically marginalized communities.

The Economic Equity Investment Program (EEIP) offers nearly $15 million in grant funding to culturally responsive organizations to provide outreach, support, and resources to eligible beneficiaries to address longstanding economic inequities. Successful applicants will demonstrate a meaningful track record of delivering programs or resources to target populations within at least one of the following key areas: land ownership and real property acquisition, entrepreneurship and business development, workforce, and intergenerational wealth building. More information about this program and the grant requirements can be found here.

Business Oregon will hold an information session for anyone interested in learning more about this RFGA on January 10th, 2023. Click here to register.

Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, February 21st, 2023.
