BRAC’s September 9 COVID-19 Brief: Webinar on the EBR Small Business Micro-Grant Program

Recognizing the challenges local businesses continue to face as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City-Parish of East Baton Rouge has partnered with the Urban League of Louisiana and Investar Bank to create the Resilient Restart EBR Small Business Micro-Grant Program, a $1 million fund intended to help locally based small businesses that have been financially affected by the pandemic. Qualifying microenterprises and small businesses that apply will receive one-time grants of $2,500. The grant awards do not require repayment, and can be used for assisting with rent, utilities, inventory, accounts payable, fixed costs, employee wages, and benefits. 

Join BRAC and leaders of the program on Friday, September 11, at 10:00 a.m. for a free Q&A webinar on what the program means for businesses, the application process, and how the grant funds can be used.
