Apply Now For a Mini Grant From This State's Small Business Marketing Mini-Grants Program

Grants for small businesses come in all sizes. Small businesses should take advantage of all opportunities, including mini-grants. New Ventures Maine will award a total of $2,400 in small business marketing mini-grants in six regions around the state. The deadline to apply is Friday, May 5, 2017 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Eligible businesses must be located in Maine and have 5 or fewer full-time equivalent employees and gross annual sales of $250,000 or less. Applicants can include individual micro-business owners, business partners, or groups of business owners. Non-profit organizations are not eligible.

Grant money must be used for marketing and promotion, not equipment and tools. The purpose of the New Ventures Maine’s marketing mini-grant program is to strengthen access to markets for micro-businesses by supporting the development of marketing tools, materials, and activities.

Winning grants must be matched by a 25 percent contribution in matching funds which can come from business profits, personal funds, or other sources. Cash mini-grants are awarded up to $400 each to support marketing projects for micro-enterprises in the state of Maine.
