Grand Rapids Opportunities for Women received a $400,000 grant to fund its small business development lending in economically disadvantaged communities.
The nonprofit said last week that it received the sum as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) financial award. The nonprofit in 2016 earned its CDFI designation from the U.S. Department of Treasury’s CDFI Fund. This is Grand Rapids Opportunities for Women’s (GROW) second CDFI financial award since then.
