The Apollo, in partnership with 125th Street Business Improvement District (BID) and the Harlem Commonwealth Council (HCC), is pleased to present the return of the Harlem Entrepreneurial Micro-Grant Initiative to support local businesses and arts organizations and arts collectives in financial need. 

Through the initiative, twenty $1,000 micro-grants will be distributed to local merchants and organizations that define the culture and the vitality of Harlem.

Established in 2020 in response to the disparate impact COVID-19 had on Black and Brown communities, the fund utilizes a portion of proceeds raised from Apollo Resounding, the Apollo’s virtual benefit on June 7 at 7:30pm ET and resources from 125th Street BID and the Harlem Commonwealth Council.
