Monday, April 20, 2020, Providence — Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) Rhode Island announced the introduction of a new grant program aimed at small businesses in Rhode Island that have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. The Citizens Bank - LISC Small Business Recovery Grant Program will help provide grants to hard-hit businesses and help them to weather the immediate financial impact of closures and social distancing measures currently underway in our state.
The grants for amounts up to $7,500 will help businesses limit layoffs and continue to provide employee benefits, including health insurance, and mitigate the economic instability currently faced by so many of our Main Street businesses. The fund will start accepting applications as early as Monday.
