Wells Fargo Bank's Open For Business Fund
LVUL Receives $250,000 Wells Fargo Grant
The Las Vegas Urban League (LVUL) Entrepreneurship Center recently received a $250,000 grant through Wells Fargo Bank’s Open for Business Fund that will be used to help Southern Nevada small businesses recover from the COVID pandemic. Funds will be used primarily to provide technical assistance and will be implemented over the next two years.
“This generous grant from Wells Fargo will allow us to help small businesses as they emerge from the pandemic and begin to rebuild their businesses,” Dino Browne, executive director of the LVUL Innovation Center for Entrepreneurship, said. “We will continue to team with our key resource partners like Wells Fargo to deliver assistance to our small business owners.”
Wells Fargo has committed to providing grants of approximately $420 million nationwide to help small businesses impacted by COVID-19, so they can keep their doors open, retain employees and rebuild. The Open For Business Fund was created to provide much-needed capital, technical support and long-term resiliency programs for small businesses with a focus on women and diverse entrepreneurs, as part of fostering an inclusive recovery.
The Las Vegas Urban League and Las Vegas Urban League Women, Infants and Children (WIC) programs are 501c (3) programs funded by the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services Division of Public Health.
