Announcing the At Your Side Small Business Grant Program

January 12, 2021 | Announcing the “At Your Side” Small Business Grant Program |

As small businesses continue to weather the challenges of the pandemic, we’ve teamed up with Brother International on a grant program to provide support. The “At Your Side” Small Business Grant Program will provide funding to brick-and-mortar small businesses in designated Main Street districts as they work to adapt to COVID-19 and prepare for the next phases of reopening across the country, while also helping to revitalize and strengthen older and historic commercial corridors. The program will provide a total of $75,000 to Main Street small businesses in need.

Applications will open at 12pm EST/ 11am CST on Thursday, January 21 and continue to be accepted through Thursday, January 28 at 7:59pm EST/ 6:59pm CST.

Grants of $5,000 to $10,000 will be awarded on a competitive basis. Applicants must operate in a “brick and mortar” storefront located in an Accredited or Affiliate Main Street America community or UrbanMain commercial corridor. You can find those programs here.
