Filed under Financial, News digest

The Jane Adams Hull House Association in Chicago is one of 100 nonprofits throughout the United States to receive a grant this year from the U.S. Small Business Association’s Program for Investment in Microentrepreneurs (PRIME). The grants, which total $7.6 million nationally, are designed to help the nonprofits provide business training and technical assistance to low-income entrepreneurs who own businesses with five or fewer employees.

Jane Adams Hull House, which received a $67,000 grant, was the only nonprofit in Illinois to receive a federal PRIME grant.  Grants ranged up to $227,500 this year, and the program required each recipient organization to match 50 percent of the grant amount, the SBA said. A complete list of grant recipients in 44 states is available on the SBA’s website: http://www.sba.gov/content/prime-grantees.
