2022 Micro Grant Program

The application period for the 2022 Micro Grants is now CLOSED!

PEIBWA Micro Grants are designed to help new, growing, and established women entrepreneurs through a non-repayable grant and business skills support. 

2022 Funding Partner 

We would like to thank Copper Bottom Brewing for joining us as the 2022 Micro Grant program funding partner. This valuable program would not be possible without their support. 

Copper Bottom is releasing a beer called Betty’s Ale, commemorating Island singer- songwriter Ashley Condon's mother, as part of Copper Bottom’s GiveBack Initiative series.

$1 from each can or pint of beer sold will be donated to the PEIBWA, which will then be used to support a micro-grant program for Island women in business.

The beer will launch on July 5th, to coincide with Ashley’s Condon play "Betty’s Song" at the Confederation Centre of the Arts. It will be available exclusively at Copper Bottom Brewing and at the Confederation Centre of the Arts.
