Local business awarded $25,000 enhancement grant

LaTonya Mister, owner of SOW and REAP Physical Therapy, LLC, was recently announced as a recipient of a 2022 Enhancement grant by the Coalition to Back Black Businesses.

The program awards the most promising and innovative Black-owned small businesses an additional $25,000 enhancement grant to further solidify their resilience and long-term success. This grant will help these businesses develop a stronger online presence, relocate to a larger physical space, hire additional staff, and more. 

SOW & REAP Physical Therapy is a physical therapy practice that specializes in pelvic health. They offer orthopedic physical therapy, women and male pelvic health physical therapy, and holistic treatment options to support female reproductive health.

“The $5,000 Coalition to Back Black Businesses grant helped tremendously” Mister expressed. “We were in the process of relocating to our new, more prominent location when we received the $5,000 grant.”

LaTonya Mister shared how the money helped benefit her local business. “We used that money to purchase new exercise equipment and office furniture. We bought a $500 treadmill, $2,000 therapy mat, and spent $2,500 on office furniture and decor. Your grant allowed us to avoid financing, with interest, our new equipment and furniture.”

They plan to use the $25,000 Coalition to Back Black Business grant for marketing, to purchase new equipment, and to hire full-time front desk staff to schedule patients and market to providers’ offices to increase new referrals.

SOW and Reap Physical Therapy, LLC is located at 1743 Swan Lake Rd. in Bossier City. You can learn more by visiting them online at www.sowandreappt.com.
