To extend a helping hand to small businesses suffering from the impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation – in partnership with Vistaprint and a coalition of supporting companies, foundations and philanthropic donors – is working to provide financial relief through the newly-created Save Small Business Fund.
The Fund is providing $5,000 in short-term relief to employers across the United States, including chambers of commerce. The grant application will go live on Monday, April 20 in the afternoon. To learn more about the Save Small Business Fund and to apply for a grant, visit savesmallbusiness.com. Qualifying businesses must meet the following criteria:
- Employ between 3 and 20 people
- Be in an economically vulnerable community
- Have been harmed financially by the Coronavirus pandemic
Grants for this program will be distributed on a weekly, rolling basis until all funds have been allocated. They are designed to help as many businesses as possible meet their most pressing needs — from rent, making payroll or for overall business operations.
