Our government has a plan to help Main Street small businesses reopen safer, rehire faster, and rebuild stronger — and it starts with the new $60-million Main Street Recovery Grant.
As part of our Main Street Recovery Plan, this grant will provide the hardest hit small and main street businesses with a one-time grant of up to $1,000 to help offset the costs of personal protective equipment (PPE). The grant will help defray expenses for businesses in the retail, food and accommodations, and other service sectors with fewer than 10 employees — for things like plexiglass shields, gloves, face coverings, and other items businesses need to protect their employees and customers, while increasing confidence for consumers.
