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