NEW SMALL BUSINESS GRANT PROGRAMS OPENING SOON

HOW TO APPLY 

As you may have heard, there are two new state small business grant programs opening soon that can provide additional direct financial support to small businesses in your community impacted by the COVID-19 shutdown. The grant programs are being administered through local Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), ours being the Community First Fund in Harrisburg (www.communityfirstfund.org). The grant programs and total available funding for each are as follows: 

Main Street Business Revitalization Program - $100 million 

Historically Disadvantaged Business Revitalization Program  - $100 million 

These grants are for small businesses with annual revenues of up to $1 million and 25 or fewer employees. Applications for these programs will open on June 29th. Once open, small businesses will be able to apply through their local CDFI including Community First Fund in Harrisburg. However, businesses can apply through any of the 17 participating CDFIs in the state. 

The Harrisburg Regional Chamber will be hosting a webinar on Wednesday, June 24th at 10:30AM that provide an overview on how to apply. Presenters include the CEO of the Community First Fund.  Businesses in your community are encouraged to register for this webinar to learn about the programs and how to apply. Participation is limited to 500.
