New Grant Opportunity For Florence Small Businesses

By  | July 29, 2020 | Filed under: News
FLORENCE-Downtown Florence Alliance is thrilled to announce the launch of the HartBeat of Main Street Grant Program. Grants of $5,000 to $15,000 will be awarded to support brick-and-mortar small businesses in commercial districts as they enter the next phases of reopening across the country. Applications are now open. They will continue to be accepted until 11:59pm PT Sunday, August 23 or until 500 applications have been submitted, whichever is sooner. There will be subsequent grant rounds to accept additional applications later this summer.
In partnership with The Hartford, the grant program will fund solutions that help small business owners respond and adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic, and also help to revitalize and strengthen older and historic downtown commercial districts. A minimum of 50 percent of grants will benefit diverse-owned businesses, as defined by the Small Business Administration as minority, woman, veteran, disabled, and/or LGBTQ-owned.
Learn more about small business eligibility requirements and eligible grant expenses on Downtown Florence Alliance’s   website. Please contact hartbeat@savingplaces.org with any questions.
