Resources for Businesses
Greenville County has been entrusted with allocating Federal CARES Act money to our businesses, non-profits, public health outlets, housing authorities, special purpose districts and other agencies. CARES mandates that all funding meet the criteria of providing relief directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
LISC is providing relief grants to small businesses to help them keep functioning and remain vital facets of their local economies through the COVID-19 pandemic. Awards will be made to qualified businesses, and eligibility is based on accurate and complete submission. Priority will be given especially to entrepreneurs of color, women- and veteran-owned businesses and other enterprises in historically under-served places who don’t have access to flexible, affordable capital. The sixth round of applications is open until September 7th.
The SC Small Business Development Centers are committed to being a resource to grow entrepreneurs in South Carolina. Visit their COVID-19 response pages for information on how to protect your small business.
La Promesa de Greenville | Greater Greenville Pledge
As Greenville takes its first steps toward a phased reopening, one of the priorities for our city is to help local businesses get back to work as quickly and safely as possible. The Business Recovery Task Force, a collaboration among the Greenville Chamber, City of Greenville, Greenville County and Greenville Area Development Corporation, has been working with business owners to better understand their needs and find ways to assist. Hispanic Alliance is grateful to be of service by helping translate sections of this page and finding existing resources in Spanish.
