Main Street Small Business Grants Available — Apply Today!



Staff Contribution


In addition to the state’s small business grants coming online today, the second round of the HartBeat of Main Street Grant Program is also rolling out to assist small businesses.  


The HartBeat of Main Street Grant Program was created to support brick-and-mortar businesses in commercial districts as they enter the next phases of reopening across the country.  


The 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. 


Grants of $5,000 to $15,000 will be awarded on a competitive and first-come, first-served basis. 

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.


Applications will be accepted beginning today at noon. The deadline to apply is October 29, 2020 at 7:59 PM.
