We’re thrilled to launch a new small business grant program with The Hartford! The HartBeat of Main Street will fund solutions that help small business owners respond and adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic, and also help to revitalize and strengthen older and historic downtown commercial districts. Grants of $5,000 to $15,000 will be awarded to support brick-and-mortar businesses in commercial districts as they enter the next phases of reopening across the country.
Applications open today and will continue to be accepted until 11:59pm PT Sunday, August 23 or until 500 applications have been submitted, whichever is sooner. A minimum of 50 percent of grants will benefit diverse-owned businesses, as defined by the Small Business Administration as minority, woman, veteran, disabled, and/or LGBTQ-owned.
