U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Launches Fund with Vistaprint to Support Small Business Recovery
Small businesses are the foundation of our communities and our economy. Employing nearly half the American workforce, they keep our neighborhoods running and make them feel like home. The impacts of the coronavirus pandemic have wrought unprecedented financial uncertainty. These businesses need resources and relief — and they need it now.
That’s why the Save Small Business Fund, a grantmaking initiative funded by contributions from corporate and philanthropic partners, is providing $5,000 in short-term relief to employers across the United States. These one-time supplemental cash grants are for businesses that have between three and 20 employees and operate in an economically vulnerable community.
Our initial assessment of this program shows that, at this time, the program is available to businesses that fit the criteria and are located in the following towns in the Chamber's service area: Brimfield, Brookfield, Holland, North Brookfield, Southbridge, Spencer, Wales, Warren and West Brookfield. We are monitoring and will keep you apprised of any changes.
The grant application will go live on Monday, April 20 at 3:00 PM EST.

We’re in this together,
