D.C. business development nonprofit 1863 Ventures is offering hundreds of $5,000 grants to Black-owned businesses across the country, including in Baltimore. The initiative, part of 1863’s 3Rs program (Recovery, Rebuild, Resilient), is newly funded through a $1.2 million grant from The Rockefeller Foundation. That money will go toward giving $5,000 grants and three months of business coaching to 1,400 Black-owned businesses in 14 cities, including D.C., Baltimore, Chicago and Atlanta, the nonprofit said Monday.
