If your business successfully applied for and received a grant from MGCC’s previous grant programs, the same business location may not apply to this program.

Non-approved uses of funds: Major equipment purchases, purchase of real property, construction activities, business expansion, lobbying. Also, grantees must prevent the duplication of benefits, which means these grant funds may not be used to pay expenses if another source of financial aid has paid that same expense.
