About the Sponsor

Deal Overview

The JPMC-LISC Diverse Supplier Grant Initiative provided a $200,000 recoverable grant to Bottom Line to assist the company with funding costs associated with large contracts. In early 2022, BLCD won contracts with two schools for park landscaping and restoration and used the growth capital investment to cover the bonding and funds control expenses and help cover insurance costs to carry out the two projects.
