February 10th: Small Business Economic Recovery Program Grant Application Deadline

February 3, 2021 1:37 PM

Hi Neighbors,

At last night's Common Council meeting I voted to increase the existing budget by $250,000 for the Small Business Economic Recovery Program (SBERP) (in addition to the already allocated $2.5 million for SBERP). I always recognize our small, minority-owned business needs and during last year's budget I also sponsored several budget amendments to allocate more funding for our community.

I recognize the inequities in funding and support for small businesses, especially those owned by people of color. It is important for us to support them. Under the SBERP program, the city is helping small businesses by providing them with up to $10,000 in grant funding.

If you are a small business owner, I encourage you to apply for the grant. Please also share this information with other small business owners.

The deadline to submit the application is coming up next week Wednesday, February 10th. Friends, city funds are limited, and I would encourage you all to apply for the grant as soon as possible.

SBER

More information about the grant can be found at https://www.cityofmadison.com/dpced/economicdevelopment/equity-recovery-grants/3524/

For more questions about the grant please contact Ruth Rohlich at rrohlich@cityofmadison.com

All my best,

Syed
