Recertification Assistance Program

GMSDC Announces Disaster Relief Certification Fund

The Georgia Minority Supplier Development Council, Georgia’s leading small business development and supplier diversity advocacy organization, has established a Disaster Relief Certification Fund.

GMSDC is responding to this challenging time by reintroducing GMSDC Cares, the organization’s advocacy work to assist certified minority businesses impacted by economic hardship. As part of GMSDC Cares, the Disaster Relief Certification Fund will be used to help Minority Business Enterprises retain their certification and remain active with GMSDC. Due to the generosity of The Coca-Cola Company and Truist, GMSDC can help make an immediate impact on minority businesses.

This fund will be available Friday, May 1st. Funding requests will be open to current certified Minority Business Enterprises with revenues less than $5 million applying for recertification.
