Launch of FRA Grant for Fitchburg’s Small Business Community
The Fitchburg Redevelopment Authority (FRA) is pleased to announce the launch of its Emergency Economic Development Resiliency Grant for local businesses within the city of Fitchburg as a result of the impact of the coronavirus.
In view of the current state of the local economy due to the coronavirus, the FRA has developed the Emergency Economic Resiliency 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 new website and Facebook page starting Monday, April 13, 2020 and review will continue until the funding runs out.
