Flint, MI, May 2024 – 100K Ideas, with the generous support of the Ruth Mott Foundation, will be awarding ten (10) $1,000 grants to north Flint residents.

Realizing the need for small gap funding for Flint residents, 100K Ideas is relaunching the Office Hours Innovation Grant for the third year in a row. The primary goal of this initiative is to award small grants to local north Flint entrepreneurs, innovators, and small businesses. The grants are designed to help individuals purchase equipment, supplies, and other initial business expenses that may be out of reach without additional financial resources.

“We understand that many early-stage businesses simply need a small amount of capital to launch their idea. Whether it be funding for business cards or to purchase a piece of equipment, at times it can still be a barrier. Providing a small grant, we hope, will close some of those smaller financial gaps that create barriers to entrepreneurship,” said Brandee Cooke-Brown, Executive Director of 100K Ideas.

“Feedback from north Flint residents prioritized support for small businesses as a means to stimulate economic growth. The Ruth Mott Foundation is pleased to partner with 100K Ideas to provide mini grants that help entrepreneurs put their ideas and plans into practice,” said Raquel Thueme, President of the Ruth Mott Foundation.

·         Reside in one of the following zip codes: 48504, 48505, 48506.
