The City of Richmond has announced the launch of Richmond Recovers, a grant program for small businesses and non-profits within the city.

The program mirrors a similar program, Rebuild VA, which was announced by the state earlier this month and is open to all Virginia small businesses and non-profits.


Why is this important?
The Richmond Recovers grant program offers small businesses grants awards ranging from $10,000-$15,000 based on their number of full-time employees. The funds can be used to reimburse the costs of employee wages (including the cost of benefits); rent and utilities for commercial workspaces; and working capital. Applications will be available beginning September 1, 2020.

The state-wide Rebuild VA grant program provides grants up to three times the business’ average monthly eligible expenses with a maximum award of $10,000. Applications are currently being accepted for these grants.
