U.S. Chamber Foundation Launches Fund to Support the Small Business Community
The U.S. Chamber Foundation has launched the Save Small Business Fund with Vistaprint to provide assistance to small business owners impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. With contributions from corporate and philanthropic partners, the Chamber Foundation will distribute $5,000 grants to small employers in the U.S. and its territories.
The Save Small Business Fund is part of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Save Small Business Initiative—a nationwide effort to address small business owners' immediate needs, mitigate closures and job losses, and mobilize the long-term support the small business community needs for recovery.
A business must be located in an economically vulnerable community. This is defined as the bottom 80% of the most economically distressed zip codes in the United States, as ranked by the Distressed Communities Index.
Grant applications will open on April 20, 2020. For information on eligibility, grant timeline, and more, visit savesmallbusiness.com.
