      This is likely a publicity stunt on the part of Facebook. Or a straight PR scam. We’ve tallied 207 businesses in the Charlotte, Atlanta GA, and Raleigh NC areas who applied over 4 months ago. Not a single grant award has been made.
      We also tallied 117 businesses in the New York, and New Jersey area, all who applied 3 months ago, again not a single award has been made.
      The last tally we conducted 4 weeks ago via Facebook groups, over 4302 businesses responded that applied 3 months ago and not a single award has been made either.
      In our estimates, this is not a real grant but another one of Facebooks gimmicks!
