Small businesses are still suffering from the devastating effects of the pandemic, which are exacerbated by the current economic environment. That’s why the American Relief Program Act, or ARPA, is still providing funding to small business owners in communities across the country. Amounts offered by ARPA-related programs will vary depending on the problem the community wishes to address.
So be sure to keep up with any ARPA-related grants being offered in your community and apply as soon as possible. If you’re facing financial hardship, these grants or one-time payments through stimulus packages are a great way to keep your business going. And since you don’t have to pay it back, you can optimize your funds to do more.
ARPA grants for small businesses include several programs designed to help businesses suffering financial losses due to the pandemic. Programs such as the Small Business STIMulus Grant Program will provide one-time grants of up to $50,000, while other grants will provide up to $10,000 to support operations. Learn about all the other grants available now.
