IMPORTANT: Although you can fill in a form while it is displayed within your browser, we strongly recommend that you not do so. You will lose all entered form data if you browse to other web pages in the same browser window that you are using to display the screen fillable form. You run the risk of accidentally deleting all of your entered form data by inadvertently clicking on the “back or “forward” buttons on your browser. Clicking either of these buttons will close the form and delete all your information. Instead, write and edit your answers in a Word or Text doc, then cut and paste into the form fields.
The pilot of the ReEntry Entrepreneurship Program (REEP) is designed for returning citizens or the formerly incarcerated. Please consider the following prior to completing this application:
- Participants must have 6 months to 5 years post-release status.
- During this 6-month program, participants must be available for Module 1 – a mandatory weekend on Friday 6/22 through Sunday 6/24; evenings classes – twice per week for Module 2 and once per week for Module 3. Click link for schedule
- Participants must reside in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area. The program’s focus area and where the businesses will be based is along the Beatties Ford Road corridor (between Five Points and I-85).
- Participants should have a team-centric mindset. While individual ideas and ventures are welcome, REEP wants participants who are willing to build businesses as teams and through collaborations within the class.
