Small Business owners are eligible to apply for grants of up to $50,000 that can be used for both internal and external improvements to their commercial property. Small businesses across the city are eligible with priority to minority-owned small businesses in disinvested areas, as identified in the One Atlanta Economic Mobility Plan.
Applications will be accepted on a continuous basis until program funds are fully allocated, or the end of the program term in 2024. In addition to prioritizing minority-owned small businesses in disinvested areas, selection will be based on project readiness, need for funding, and project impact on business operations.
NOTE: Application intake for this program is currently closed due to the high level of interest that exceeds our available funding. Please sign up for our newsletter to receive program updates, including reopening of the application if applicable.
