George Floyd’s family is ready to accept business applications for grants funded by monies from their illegal 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 in grants to businesses in the neighborhood where Floyd died.
