Grant Program Returns for Second Year
Boulder, Colo. • October 1, 2019 — Today, the Brewers Association—the not-for-profit trade association dedicated to small and independent American brewers—announced the opening of the application period for its 2020 Diversity and Inclusion Event Grants. In its second year, the grant program provides funds to U.S. events that intentionally promote and foster a more diverse and inclusive craft beer community.
“Through the work of our 2019 grantees, we’ve seen firsthand how grassroots programs can help affect change in communities across the country and in our industry and we are excited to continue this program in 2020,” said Kevin Blodger, chair of Brewers Association’s diversity committee, and co-founder of Union Craft Brewing in Baltimore, MD.
In its inaugural year, the grants program awarded a total of $20,000 to six events, ranging from festivals to employment fairs.
