U.S. Chamber Foundation Launches Save Small Business Fund

This week, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation launched the Save Small Business Fund — a grant program to provide assistance to small business owners impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. 

The four-part campaign includes supplemental financial assistance, advocacy, resources, webinars and guides, and research. Funded by contributions from corporate and philanthropic partners, the U.S. Chamber Foundation will be providing $5,000 supplemental grants to small employers in economically vulnerable communities.

“More funding means more small businesses on the path to recovery, and more partners mean a larger support system for those that need it the most. In this unprecedented time, this could be the difference between a business reopening or permanently shutting down,” said Marc DeCourcey, Senior Vice President, U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation 

To qualify, applicants must employ between three and 20 people, be located in an economically vulnerable community, and have been harmed financially by COVID-19. 

Grant applications will open on April 20, 2020. Grants will be awarded weekly on a rapid and rolling basis until all funds have been dispersed. To learn more about the Save Small Business Fund or apply for a grant, visit www.savesmallbusiness.com.
