Marketing Micro-Grants

The purpose of the NDIBA marketing grant program is to support the growth of your business. The grant gives your business an opportunity to expand into new markets, launch a new product or service, create an online presence, and much more.

Funded through the Northwest Area Foundation, this program provides micro-grants between $500-1,000 per project to qualifying businesses. Grant applications and awards will be reviewed by the North Dakota Indian Business Alliance. NDIBA and the Northwest Area Foundation will determine (at their sole discretion) the recipient(s) of the grant and the amount of the award. Grants are typically awarded within 4-6 weeks following the date of the grant application.

Half of the grant will be issued upon the award decision. The remaining half will be issued upon completion of the projects and accompanying invoices/documentation.
