Three Small Black-Owned Businesses Awarded CAR Grants

During the month of February 2021, we awarded $1,000 grants to three Black-owned small Chicago businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Congratulations to Absolutely Anything Essential, GILDA Designer Thrift Boutique and Male Mogul Initiative Inc. These grants honor their lasting and significant impact on their communities.

On Friday, February 26, President Nykea Pippion McGriff, CEO Michelle Mills Clement and External Affairs Manager Jakeeva Lee presented each business owner their grant check.
