Update: April 17, 2020, 1 pm – Upon a closer look at the program, one of the requirements is that the business be located in an “economically vulnerable community” and this is based on zip codes. Fife qualifies, but Edgewood and Milton do not. If your business is in another location, use the zip code checker to determine your eligibility for this program.
As your Chamber of Commerce, we know that small businesses are the foundation of our communities and our economy. Employing nearly half the American workforce, they keep our neighborhoods running and make them feel like home. The impacts of the coronavirus pandemic have wrought unprecedented financial uncertainty. These businesses need resources and relief — and they need it now.
That’s why the Save Small Business Fund, a grant making initiative funded by contributions from corporate and philanthropic partners, is providing $5,000 in short-term relief to employers across the United States. These one-time supplemental cash grants are for businesses that have between 3 and 20 employees and operate in an economically vulnerable community.
The grant application will go live on Monday, April 20 at 12:00 PM PT/3:00 PM ET. To learn more about the Save Small Business Fund and to apply for a grant, visit savesmallbusiness.com.
We’re in this together,
