About the Regional Resiliency Fund
These are extraordinary and threatening times. Venture North created the Regional Resiliency Fund to help Michigan businesses navigate Covid-19. The fund awards small grants to Lower Northwest Michigan businesses that have fewer than nine employees.
Since the initial $200,000 from the Consumers Energy Foundation, the RRF has distributed almost $400,000 to 100 small businesses. Further donations from foundations, corporations, and individuals will help provide our community with the resources it needs.
