Michigan Small Business Restart Program | Michigan Business

Critical relief totaling nearly $100 million for more than 14,000 small businesses across the state has been awarded to date through the Michigan Small Business Restart Grant program, (https://www.michiganbusiness.org/restart/)Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced today.

“Families across the state depend on small businesses for their livelihood, and these grants, combined with additional COVID-19 business relief efforts offered by the MEDC, have helped to create a strong foundation for Michigan’s long-term economic recovery,” said Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “By putting federal funding to work for Michigan’s small businesses and additional COVID-19 relief efforts, we have made a real impact on our families and our communities. Of course, our work is not done. We still need the president and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to work across the aisle on a bipartisan recovery package that will provide support for our families, frontline workers, and small businesses. I will continue working with all of our partners, both at the federal and the state level, to get this done for our small business owners.”
Today’s announcement brings the total amount awarded through the program to $95.6 million, up from $69 million announced at the end of September. A total of 5 percent of overall funding for the program was able to go toward administrative costs of the EDOs administering the grants.
Of the businesses that received grants, 4,617 reported as minority-owned, 6,314 reported as woman-owned, and 743 reported as veteran-owned, with some businesses selecting multiple categories. At least 30 percent of the funds awarded under the program were required to be provided to women-owned, minority-owned or veteran-owned eligible businesses, and all EDOs have met, or exceeded, this requirement in the awards being made.
In total, the MEDC has launched 19 COVID-19 relief and recovery programs that have supported more than 18,500 businesses in the state and helped to retain nearly 147,000 jobs across all 83 counties. To learn more about MEDC’s COVID-19 response programs and the impact they are having on economic recovery efforts, visit michiganbusiness.org/covid19response. Other resources for economic reopening efforts as well as businesses across Michigan struggling with economic losses as a result of the COVID-19 virus can be found online at michiganbusiness.org/covid19.

The Michigan Small Business Restart Program will support the needs of Michigan Businesses directly impacted by COVID-19.

Grants

Macomb County Planning and Economic Development has three grant opportunities to help small businesses dealing with the impact of COVID-19.

The three new grant opportunities include:
• The Microenterprise Assistance Grant Program, which is funded by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. Up to $2 million is available to help local businesses impacted by COVID-19. This program will provide grant funding to qualified microenterprises (five employees or less, including the owner) that have lost revenue or incurred additional costs as a result of COVID-19. Applications will be accepted September 1 at 9 a.m. through September 30 at 11:59 a.m. Eligibility may vary depending on individual communities and income level restrictions are applicable.

• The Workplace Safety Grant, which is funded through Macomb County’s federal CARES Act allocation. Up to $10 million is available to reimburse local small businesses for personal protective equipment (PPE) and technology. Businesses with 500 or fewer employees may submit up to $20,000 in PPE and technology receipts dated March 16, 2020 through September 30, 2020 for reimbursement. Submissions will close on September 30 or when funds are exhausted. Examples of reimbursable items include hand sanitizer, plexiglass, HVAC UV scrubbers, face shields, masks, mobile devices, laptop, tablets and/or software for remote meeting or connections such as Zoom or Webex.

• Online Business Connect Program, which is also funded through Macomb County’s federal CARES Act allocation. Up to $5 million is available to help local small businesses get online. This program will issue vouchers up to $10,000 to customer-facing businesses that need online functionality due to social distancing restrictions. This includes creating or improving websites, social media or e-commerce stores. Submissions will be accepted through September 30 or when funds are exhausted. Work performed must be under contractual obligation through vetted vendors and completed by November 30, 2020.

Businesses that previously received grant funding through the Macomb County Sustainability Program are eligible to apply for all three new grant programs, as long as the previous grant money was not used for these expenses.
