    Will the grant application be open back up? Or it is done for this year?

      Jessica Dinsmore

      Hi Tiffany,
      Are you referring to the Merchant Maverick Opportunity Grant? If so, we met and exceeded our cap in the first few weeks, so it is closed. We will be offering more grants in the future though!

        What is the name of the link that displays the application for the Maverick Opportunity grant for black females? I can’t locate it anywhere.

          Hi Linda,
          We met our applicant cap much sooner than we expected! The deadline was April 1st or whenever we hit the cap of 1,000 applicants, whichever came first. It ended up being the cap, which we blew right by with nearly 2,200 applicants in only a few weeks.
