Small business owners in southwest Ohio received some extra holiday cheer from local chambers of commerce + the Duke Energy Foundation to kick off the season. The Small Business Assistance grant program awarded $175,000 to support 35+ minority-, women-, and veteran-owned businesses.

Since 2020, the Duke Energy Foundation has provided ~$880,000 to help small businesses in southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky survive and rebound from the pandemic.
