Family of George Floyd opens their wallet for business grants
The family of George Floyd is ready to take applications from businesses for grants funded by money from their wrongful death legal settlement with the city of Minneapolis.
Floyd, who was Black, died in May 2020 after a White Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes.
His family won a $27 million settlement from the city in March 2021 and set aside $500,000 for grants to businesses in the neighborhood where Floyd died.
