The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today launched a comprehensive new online resource center with funding programs, resources and guidance for small businesses struggling from the pandemic and waiting for Congress to provide further financial relief.
Launched amid Congressional inaction to provide additional, much-needed financial relief to Main Street, the Chamber’s Save Small Business Resources Center aggregates and organizes federal, state, and local financial assistance programs, emergency financial relief resources, and grant programs—as well as private sector programs—to help provide the assistance and guidance small businesses need right now.
“Small businesses continue to be disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and while there is no substitute for the much-needed congressional action, the U.S. Chamber is fully committed to helping small businesses get through this difficult time,” said Suzanne Clark, President, U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “We hope these resources and tools help small businesses survive and bounce back stronger, so that they can continue to support the millions of families and communities that depend on them.”
The Save Small Business Resources Center contains information on 25 state-specific grant programs in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin. Additionally, the site compiles and includes eligibility information on more than 15 corporations and nonprofits that have stepped up to provide assistance to small businesses, including programs led by Google, Salesforce, GoFundMe.org, and many others.
The U.S. Chamber will regularly update the resources center as additional programs and information become available. Read More
