Small business owners in Northern Kentucky 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 $100,000 to support 25 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.
