In the continuation of the campaign, Intuit will be allocating its $1 million in grants from now until March 31, 2012. Each month, Intuit will be awarding $25,000 in hiring grants to a randomly selected business that has been nominated on the website.
Shana Rawlings, a local business grant recipient and owner of Harmony in Hooves Therapeutic Riding Center in Benton, Ark., said of the program: "People don't realize that a few thousand dollars can go a long way when you're a small business, working with a 'down to the penny' tightrope budget."

"As a company trusted by and relied upon by millions of small businesses, we at Intuit see ourselves as partners of small business, so it's our responsibility to help them continue to progress," said Nora Denzel, senior vice president and general manager of Intuit's Employee Management Solutions, in a statement.
