In the News: Main Street Grants Help Local Businesses


If you are a Main Street business serving your community and looking for a grant to keep your business running during these tough times, there are grants specifically designed to help you.

These grants have limited funds, but they are designed to help specific sectors. And in many cases, it’s these types of grants that make the difference between staying open and closing doors. You can get grants of $ 500 to $ 10,000 and maybe more. Some of the grants are the Atlanta QuickBooks Restaurant Relief Program; Windsor ARPA Grants Program and the Downtown North Wilkesboro Partnership Small Business Micro-Grants Program.

These grants are only available in the communities they serve and therefore have limited funds. But be sure to keep an eye on your community for such opportunities. Indeed, applying early gives you the best chance of securing the funds offered by these grants.
