Lendahand Small Business Grant Program

Application Deadline Friday, September 30th at 11:59pm EST

The LendingTree Bowl has announced that it will be doubling the number of receipts in the LendaHand Small Business Grant Program — raising its total contributions to small businesses in Mobile County to $40,000. The program will also lower the annual minimum income requirements, which will help more local companies qualify for a potential $10,000 grant to support their small business.

As part of the 2022 bowl game, LendingTree will be selecting four small businesses to highlight throughout bowl season. In addition to a $10,000 grant, the four selected businesses will be highlighted on LendingTree’s social media channels and through advertising associated with the game. Local businesses with 25 or fewer employees in operation for more than a year can apply through September 30.

Seeing the Bowl doubling LendingTree’s investment into the LendaHand program in Mobile is wonderful. Small businesses make Mobile what it is, and we are proud to continue participating in this program to help highlight the great work local entrepreneurs are doing. If your small business is interested in a LendaHand Small Business Grant, you can find an application and additional information about eligibility requirements at
