Who is eligible?

Only small businesses located in the following locations are eligible to receive the Lowe’s Neighborhood Business Grant: Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Rhode Island, Richmond (VA), San Antonio, San Diego, and San Francisco-Bay Area.

We will deploy grants to help them bridge the financial gap, and provide guidance to help them navigate the intricate web of public and private resources now available. LISC will focus these efforts on historically underserved communities—especially those enterprises owned or led by minorities and women, who often lack access to affordable capital.
