ARPA Small Business Relief Grant Application


Salem-area small businesses who meet the criteria below are invited to apply for an American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Small Business Relief Grant. Relief grants will be distributed by the Chamber in July 2022 in increments of $5,000, $10,000, and $15,000. A diverse selection committee will determine the selected recipients of grant dollars based on need and the impact the funds would have within the business.

This is an extraordinary opportunity for Salem small businesses to obtain financial support as we face a challenging economic climate for businesses.
