"We've received more than 900 U.S. applications and almost 1,200 globally over the past two years and interest in the Huggies MomInspired grant orogram continues to grow as more women start their own businesses," Huggies senior brand manager Kelly Stephenson said. "We look forward to supporting a whole new group of moms and will continue to empower the expanding 'mompreneur' community with this program. Plus, we can't wait to see the innovative ideas this year's applicants have to help nurture the relationship between mothers and their children."
