Small Business Anti-Displacement Network Announces Call for Case Study Proposals
The Small Business Anti-Displacement Network (SBAN), a project of NCSG, is soliciting proposals for case studies of efforts to preserve small businesses in gentrifying neighborhoods in the U.S. and internationally.
SBAN is particularly interested in efforts to sustain small businesses owned by immigrants and people of color, as well as strategies that address community ownership, commercial tenant protections, zoning, and form-based codes.
Individuals and teams from public, private, and non-profit organizations (including universities) may apply, and applicants may propose to study their own efforts or those of other organizations.
Grantees will receive $20,000 for their case study work and have the opportunity to learn from other case study teams, receive consultant support from SBAN experts, and present their work to the network and other stakeholders at SBAN conferences. Register here for the pre-proposal information session on May 17 at 3:00 p.m. EST. Applications are due June 10, 2022.
