REAP Local Partner for Boost Program

The Center for Rural Affairs – REAP Women’s Business Center is proud to announce that it has been selected again as a Local Partner for the Women and Company Microenterprise Boost Program. Through this program, REAP will provide cash equity awards from $500 to $2500 to REAP women microentrepreneurs in rural Nebraska communities.

The program is designed to help women grow and develop their businesses. REAP was chosen as one of 15 Local Partners throughout the country. In 2005, REAP received the top “Excellence in Microenterprise Work with Women Entrepreneurs” award from AEO and Citigroup Foundation for this program.

The Boost Program is designed to provide low and moderate-income women microentrepreneurs the opportunity to achieve greater business success by providing cash awards that will have a measurable impact on the development of their business.

The program is supported by the Citigroup Foundation and is managed by the Association for Enterprise Opportunity (AEO), a national membership association for the microenterprise development industry. Read how to apply for this year's award.
