2020 Kansas City 
Black Business Report 
Presented By G.I.F.T.

Kneeling Protestors

In this report, we'll talk about what we've learned about Black businesses in Kansas City so far, the diversity, the wealth opportunities and challenges black entrepreneurs face. Since October 1st we've had over 70 businesses apply for funding from G.I.F.T. At the time we began working on this report, we had 56 grant applications. The findings in this report come from those 56 businesses. That means that this is not an extensive report on the Black businesses of Kansas City at large, but of what we have found so far doing this work.
