COVID-19 Grants for Massachusetts Small Businesses

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has made $50.8 million in grants available to support small businesses, microenterprises, and their employees, families and communities. Massachusetts Growth Capital Corporation (MGCC) will be administering these funds to businesses experiencing economic hardship and a loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Grant funding is intended to help businesses adversely impacted by the pandemic. Preference will be given to small businesses whose owners are women, minorities, veterans, members of other underrepresented groups, who are focused on serving the Gateway Cities of Massachusetts, and those most negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Preference will also be given to applicants that have not been able to receive aid from other federal programs related to COVID-19.

Things we’ve found out about the grants:
  • Businesses from ALL communities are encouraged to apply.
  • This grant does NOT apply to franchise or chain establishments.
  • Businesses that operate from home (i.e. do not have a physical location, even though it says that on the website), i.e. a recruiting firm that operates remotely, but is registered in Massachusetts with a business certificate can apply.
