CRGP OVERVIEW
DCABPI selected twenty (20) small businesses to receive $1,000 grant awards during CRGP Round 1 & Round 2 to help them grow and conquer obstacles due to lack of capital. Through our Community Revitalization Grant Program (CRGP), Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People, Inc. (DCABPI) is supporting the businesses owned and operated by Black, Indigenous, and people of color (aka, BIPOC) located in East Durham and Fayetteville Street Corridor that need supplemental working capital or have experienced a significant economic loss due to COVID-19. 

DCABPI received 75 applicants for CRGP funding during the two rounds. BIPOC-owned businesses selected for a CRGP award can use the funds to sustain operations, improve services, and/or make strategic investments. Each grant recipient also receives Digital Solution Training (courtesy of Microsoft), a Video Profile (courtesy of Socialotus Media), and a Business e-Card (courtesy of TAA Digital) to enhance and promote their business. In addition, the businesses are featured on DCABPI's website in the “Celebrating the Legacy - Small Business Spotlight” section shown below.  DCABPI plans to secure additional funding from sponsors to continue the beneficial community program.
