Information on TMF’s 2021 Grant Cycle is forthcoming, but will be by “invitation only” given the limited funding available.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented need for small businesses. Due to overwhelming demand, TMF’s application process for grants is by invitation only at this time. Our priorities are to provide funding to businesses that have not been able to access other funding, those in high-poverty neighborhoods, and businesses owned by those who have historically had less access to traditional capital, including: BIPOC, immigrants, and women.
Additional resources and tips for businesses are being updated regularly and can be found here. You can also sign up for our newsletter where we frequently share information related to other funding opportunities. If you would like to be added to our Wait List to be considered for a grant, please complete this form.
Eligibility for funding from TMF includes that the business must be:
- located in Philadelphia.
- demonstrate financial need.
- be compliant with local, state, and federal taxes (or an approved payment plan).
- have all licenses and permits to operate legally.
- be in existence for at least 3 years (occasional consideration is given to more newly established businesses, but TMF does not fund start-ups).
