Did you know? $75 million in grant funding is now available for Greenville County small businesses. Greenville County has been entrusted with allocating Federal CARES Act money to our businesses, non profits, and other agencies. If your business has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic between March 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020 you may qualify for relief. Follow this LINK to apply!
The state of South Carolina received funds from the CARES Act and it was allocated a number of different ways. Part of it was put into grant opportunities for small businesses with less than 25 employees. Staffing costs, operating costs, facility costs, PPE, and even revenue loss are all considered qualifying expenses. Grants will range from $2,500 - $25,000.
This is a statewide program and the application window is between Oct. 19th – Nov. 1st so I would encourage any customers that are interested, to apply as early as possible. Non-profits (501c3’s only) can also apply.
