Thanks to a $2.5 million investment from Verizon into LISC’s Rapid Relief & Resiliency Fund, LISC is offering grants of up to $10,000 to for profit and nonprofit businesses facing immediate financial pressure because of COVID-19. First round of application opens today and closes April 4th.
Additionally, Verizon recently launched #PayItForwardLIVE, a weekly livestream concert from big names to pay it forward for small businesses. Viewers can tune in every Tuesday and Thursday at 8PM ET/ 5PM PT on @Verizon’s Twitter, Yahoo, Twitch, and Fios Channel 501. As people support their favorite small businesses with #PayItForwardLIVE, Verizon will commit an additional $10 per use of the hashtag, up to another $2.5 million of support.
