The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), as well as Amazon, have several grant opportunities to help small businesses. As always, grants aim to address specific issues and in some cases can be quite specific. This includes the need to relocate due to local construction. And this highlights why it’s so important to apply for grants that apply to your situation. Applying for a grant for which you do not meet the requirements will only end up being rejected. So, apply as soon as possible and make sure you meet all the criteria.
ARPA grants include a relocation grant due to local construction, as well as helping small businesses still struggling through the pandemic. The amount includes between $1,000 and $25,000 for a range of issues. Check out these grants and see if you qualify.
