The Beyond Open grant initiative looks to help build businesses located within Charlotte’s six Corridors of Opportunity — lower-income areas with a majority of residents of color, where the city is focusing $109 million worth of investments.

Foundation For the Carolinas said Friday that it has completed the first of three grantmaking rounds with its new Beyond Open small business grant program, giving money to dozens of local companies.

“We are grateful for each and every diverse small business owner who applied in Round 1 and shared their abundant talents, ingenuity and dedication,” said . . .
