Qualifying organizations are located in Oklahoma City, have 100 or fewer full time employees and demonstrate one of these: (1) economic impact of COVID-19 (2) minority-ownership or (3) location in low-income neighborhoods.

Businesses and nonprofits can receive up to $15,000 for technical services, including accounting, marketing, HR, etc. provided by local experts. 
Minority-owned businesses and those located in low income neighborhoods can receive up to $25,000 in reimbursement for facade and storefront improvements and for improvements to protect customers or workers during the pandemic.

The program is administered by the Alliance for Economic Development of Oklahoma City and funded by the American Rescue Plan Act.
