A total of 38 Sarasota area businesses were selected for Opportunities For All Business Assistance Funds grants. A selection committee with the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce picked the winners out of some 150 applicants.

“We are so proud to not only hear the needs of our minority small-business owners in the communities we serve, but the Business Assistance Grants initiative has actively engaged those communities and is making an impactful change,” said Kaveecia Moore, Opportunities For All manager.
