The South Eastern Economic Development (SEED) Corporation has been awarded a $3.6 million grant from the Economic Development Administration CARES Act Recovery Assistance Fund under the U.S. Department of Commerce. This new award is in addition to SEED’s current EDA grant funding of $3 million in support of the growth and development of entrepreneurs and small businesses in the South Eastern Massachusetts region. Counties covered by these EDA funds include; Barnstable, Bristol, Dukes, Essex, Nantucket, Norfolk, Plymouth and Suffolk.
“We are very fortunate to receive this grant which will increase SEED’s total capital to $15.5 million for small loans up to $250,000. These funds will enable SEED to provide critical gap financing to small businesses and entrepreneurs adversely affected by the coronavirus pandemic across Massachusetts. With the increased funding, SEED will be instrumental in the stabilization and rebuilding of main street businesses which play a critical role in restoring the economic stability of our region. Jobs will be retained and new opportunities created, goods and services will be available to underserved markets and economically distressed areas, and the tax basis of the Commonwealth will be sustained,” stated Susan Murray, SEED’s Executive Director.
