B2B deadline approaching Oct. 13
Businesses have until the end of day on Wednesday, Oct. 13 to apply for the first round of the Back to Business (B2B) grant program, which is allocating $250 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) dollars to help small businesses hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.

To assist small businesses with the B2B application process and other upcoming or ongoing economic recovery grant programs offered at the State or federal level, the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) has invested $9 million in support of Community Navigator organizations working in every region of the state. These organizations provide technical assistance to businesses, with a focus on underserved businesses including minority, rural, veteran and women-owned businesses.

Visit the DCEO website for more information or to apply.

Throughout October, the State of Illinois, agency leaders and partners are hosting a series of webinars, participating in events and presenting proclamations to industry leaders and the next generation of makers.
