Microenterprise Grant Program using COVID-19 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Funds
The City of Easthampton, with assistance from the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission, is working on a competitive grant application to support economic and community development efforts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a regional grant application that includes the towns (and businesses) of Easthampton, Granby, Hadley, Hatfield, Southampton, South Hadley, and Westhampton.
They are using this survey to collect information that shows the level of interest/need for Microenterprise Assistance grant funds and to establish a wait list of potential local businesses that would be interested in grant funding. Submitting this information does not guarantee that you or the City will receive grant funding. If grant funding is received by the City, grants of up to $10,000 will then be made available for eligible microenterprise businesses. Eligibility requirements are determined by the MA Department of Housing and Community Development and are posted here:
