Black Business Pandemic Recovery Grants

As the coronavirus continues to impact our world and our community, the Black Cultural Society of PEI has created the Black Business Pandemic Recovery Grants program (BBPR) to help assist local Black-owned businesses in responding to operational challenges created by COVID-19. The BBPR Grants program will provide microgrants to assist in stabilizing Black-owned businesses in Prince Edward Island where their funding has been reduced, or their operational costs have increased as a result of COVID-19.
