An Intuit program awards grants to businesses to help spur job creation in local communities
Software developer Intuit wants you to hire local and be liked by your community, and it's ponying up a million bucks to prove it.
The company's Love a Local Business grant competition provides funding for small businesses through March 2012. Over the past 18 months, Intuit has been awarding hiring grants in $500 to $25,000 increments to U.S.-based small businesses. The company has pledged to bestow $1 million in grants over the course of the program, which runs in three-month increments.
