How To Receive a $5000 Small Business Grant From the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation

in All Posts/Coronavirus: News & Advice by

Vistaprint announced April 14 it has founded the Save Small Business Fund in conjunction with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, donating $1 million to help alleviate the financial losses owners are facing as a result of COVID-19 and help secure additional partner investors.

“Funded by corporate and philanthropic partners, the Save Small Business Fund is a collective effort to provide $5,000 grants to as many small employers as we can. We hope these supplemental funds will help you get through the next days and weeks,” according to the website.

This comes at a time when eight in ten U.S. small businesses report being negatively impacted by COVID-19, according to Vistaprint research.

The Save Small Business Fund application period begins noon Monday. Eligible businesses must employ from 3 to 20 workers, be located in an economically vulnerable community and show that COVID- 19 caused fiscal harm.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation allows those interested in applying for the grants to check their zip code to see if they’re in an eligible location. Click here to check yours.

A short application will go live today, April 20, 2020, at 12:00PM PT.

The application takes about 10 minutes, the foundation said. More details are available at www.savesmallbusiness.com for more information.

  1. I think it’s a scam.
    Started right at noon PST trying to apply but it says site is overloaded.
    ok, tried again and again every 5-10 minutes or so, same errors.
    after about an hour, the site is down for “server maintenance” and/or “technical difficulties”
    after another hour or two, the site is backup saying to click “Register” button to register to the grant portal. Guess what, there is no such register button anywhere on the form.
    and finally now it says “Applications have closed”
    Probably only preselected people or internals can apply.
