A Message from DC Chamber Circle Partner
Verizon Small Business Recovery Fund
Small businesses across the country are confronting extreme economic challenges as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Financial support at this critical time can make the difference between staying in business or closing permanently, leading to lost income, jobs and economic stability.
Thanks to a  $2.5 million investment from Verizon , we are offering grants to help small businesses fill urgent financial gaps until they can resume normal operations or until other more permanent financing becomes available. 

Additionally, Verizon recently launched  #PayItForwardLIVE, a weekly livestream from big names to pay it forward for small businesses.

Viewers can tune in every Tuesday and Thursday at 8PM ET/ 5PM PT on  @ Verizon’s Twitter , Yahoo, Twitch, and Fios Channel 501. As people support their favorite small businesses with #PayItForwardLIVE, Verizon will commit an additional $10 per use of the hashtag, up to $2.5 million, for a total of up to $5 million in support.

Another round of resources will be available in mid-April. Please register via the link below to learn about the next application cycle or email  enews@lisc.org  to sign up. 
Who is eligible?
LISC will use the Verizon funding to provide grants of up to $10,000 to businesses facing immediate financial pressure because of Covid-19—especially entrepreneurs of color, women-owned businesses and other enterprises in historically underserved communities who don’t have access to flexible, affordable capital.
What it can be used for?
  • Paying rent and utilities
  • Meeting payroll
  • Paying outstanding debt to vendors
  • Other immediate operational costs
