There's so much media coverage on PPP and other government funding, however, remember there's many grants (not loans) available to smaller businesses as well such as a Visa grant.
Visa and iFundWomen recently awarded $10,000, each, to four women.
To help small business owners – particularly female entrepreneurs who already face funding challenges – Visa and IFundWomen partnered to provide $10,000 grants to U.S. based, women-led small businesses, with plans for global expansion later this year. These grants provide an opportunity for recipients to grow their businesses and continue to offer much needed services to their local (and global) communities.
Who are the women?

Nora LaTorre, CEO & Founder of the Eat REAL School Program, Oakland, CA
Priyanka Bakaya, Founder, Renewlogy, Salt Lake City, UT
