COVID-19 Small Business Grant Programs by the Numbers

Following the success of the recent COVID-19 Small Business Resiliency Grant Program, the Newport News Economic Development Authority is offering continued support for local, small businesses affected by COVID-19 with the establishment of two new grants. The Back to Business Grant and Grow Your eBusiness Grant. These grants are designed to provide one-time financial assistance to eligible for-profit, small businesses in Newport News, excluding franchises and national chains, in amounts not to exceed $5,000 (Back to Business Grant) and $2,500 (Grow Your eBusiness Grant). Grant funding is limited and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Awards will be based on the availability of funds, program guidelines and submission of a complete application along with supporting documentation.
