As part of the AmbitioUS initiative and in collaboration with Seed Commons and Uptima Business Bootcamp, the Grant & Loan Fund for Early-Stage Arts, Creative, and Cultural Cooperatives welcomes open applications from early-stage or early-stage growth creative cooperative enterprises. The Grant & Loan Fund will provide $125,000 in general operating support grants of up to $25,000 each to five creative-industry cooperative enterprises. Although not a condition of eligibility, we are prioritizing supporting cooperatives wherein a combination of a $25,000 grant from CCI, a loan of up to $50,000 from Seed Commons (terms to be customized to awardees’ potential), and technical assistance from Uptima would be catalytic in the cooperative’s further development.
