Limited Block Party sponsorships available
Now through May 19, Tinley Park businesses have the exclusive opportunity to become a sponsor for the Downtown Tinley Block Party, which will take place from noon to 7 p.m. Sunday, July 18 along Oak Park Avenue.

The Village continuously has seen 15,000 to 20,000 people at this tropical-themed event in past years, so it's a great chance to market your business to the public.

Please see the sponsorship form for more information. Some sponsorships are very limited (Presenting and Stage sponsorships in particular), so please email to confirm availability.
SBA begins distributing RRF relief
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has begun delivering economic relief from the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) to more than 16,000 approved applicants. This first round of funding represents more than $2 billion of relief awarded since the program opened on May 3.

Under the RRF, restaurants are eligible for funding equal to their pandemic-related revenue losses, capped at $10 million per business and $5 million per location. The SBA will continue to fund approved applications until all funds have been exhausted. The SBA has streamlined the application process by partnering with point-of-sale vendors to provide seamless ways to apply.

Following the 21-day priority period, all eligible applications will be funded in the order in which they have been received. While the SBA will continue accepting applications from any eligible establishment until funds are exhausted, the number of applications received so far could exhaust the funds authorized to fund the RRF. Interested onsite food establishments may still apply through SBA-recognized POS vendors or directly via the SBA online application portal.
Paycheck Protection Program loans open
Businesses have until Monday, May 31 to apply for the Small Business Administration's (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on payroll. Borrowers may be eligible for PPP loan forgiveness.

To find a lender:

To identify a loan:

  • First Draw PPP loans: If you have not received a PPP loan before, First Draw PPP loans are available to you.
  • Second Draw PPP loans: If you have previously received a PPP loan, certain businesses are eligible for a Second Draw PPP loan. 

The SBA also offers additional COVID-19 relief options. Visit the SBA website for more detailed information.
