US Chamber unveils Save Small Business Initiative Aimed at Economic Recovery from COVID-19 Crisis
Thursday, April 16, 2020
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce on April 15 unveiled its Save Small Business Initiative to address the immediate needs of the small business community, mitigate closures and job losses, and mobilize support for long-term recovery in the wake of the economic destruction of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition to a call to action for the broader business community and government to help small businesses, the four-part campaign includes supplemental financial assistance, advocacy, resources, webinars and guides, and research.
The U.S. Chamber Foundation is supporting the supplemental financial assistance by launching its Save Small Business Fund. Funded by contributions from corporate and philanthropic partners, the U.S. Chamber Foundation will be providing $5,000 supplemental grants to small-business employers in economically vulnerable communities.
Applications for the Save Small Business Grant Fund will open this Monday, April 20, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. ET. There are several eligibility requirements, which can be found here.
