Access to Capital Small Business Recovery Program is Open!

News ,


Applications for the “Access to Capital Small Business Recovery” program are now available! If you own a local small business (25 employees or fewer) that has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, visit fftc.org/CLTcitygrant to see if you qualify for a $10,000 or $25,000 award and to apply.

The program – launched by the City of Charlotte and Foundation For The Carolinas -- will distribute $30 million in federal CARES Act funding to local small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.    

With the goal to support struggling businesses as quickly and fairly as possible, applications are randomly selected each day for review – rather than on a first-come, first-served basis.

 For a complete list of criteria and to apply, visit fftc.org/CLTcitygrant . Contact cltcitygrant@fftc.org or 704.998.6499 for assistance.
