FRA Launches Fitchburg Reopening Grant

The Fitchburg Redevelopment Authority (FRA) is pleased to announce the launch of a second funding round known as the FRA Reopening Grant Program for local businesses within the city of Fitchburg affected by the impact of the pandemic.

In response to the extreme vulnerability Fitchburg businesses have faced with the Governor’s phased approach to reopening, the FRA has developed the Reopening Grant consisting of an award of up to $2,500 to eligible grantees having a physical space within the Fitchburg business community. Funding is limited but the FRA hopes to provide relief to approximately 40 businesses that have been significantly vulnerable during this unprecedented time.

Applications for the grants will be available online through the FRA’s website and Facebook page starting Monday, July 27, 2020 and review will continue until the funding runs out.
