Lowe’s supports veteran, women, minority and small businesses through $5 million in grants (1st Round Closes June 17, 2nd Round Closes Aug. 3rd)


Lowe’s remains committed to supporting small businesses, and we want to make you aware of a grant opportunity. Lowe’s is partnering with Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), the nation’s largest community development organization, to distribute $5 million in small business relief, to help minority-, women- and veteran-led, small businesses sustain operations and protect jobs impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. These funds are part of our commitment to support small businesses with $25 million, announced May 20.

  • Registration opens June 10th
  • One of the benefits of administrating grants through LISC is that they do this for other companies, as well, so while a small business may apply for a Lowe’s grant specifically if they aren’t eligible, they are immediately considered for all the other grants available.
  • For additional information and to learn how to apply, visit www.LISC.org/lowes.
  • Applications will be accepted in two rounds, totaling $5M.

Below, you’ll see the round openings in green with deadlines/closed periods in red.
