A new $5,000 grant is being introduced on April 20 by the Save Small Business Fund, which is administered by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. The Save Small Business Fund is a grant making initiative offering short-term relief for small employers in the United States and its territories. Each grant is for $5,000 and must be applied toward business expenses. They will send a follow-up survey to all grantees to learn how it was spent and the impact that it made.
