The fund was created to help support small businesses affected during this time that need a financial bridge to help support their business. As small businesses are the backbone of any community, this fund will help support those that have continued to open their doors to serve our community even when they were not having a great financial year.
We are currently taking applications for those who would like some additional funding to continue their businesses. We will need some additional information about you and your business/organization. We will contact you directly once you have completed the application.
Use the form to submit your request for funding. Please keep in mind this is for small businesses in the Greater Downtown Area of Rocky Mount.
One we receive your request, we will review the form and have our selection committee determine who will be eligible for funding and how much will be allocated to each business. You will be contacting at a later time with an update of your request.
Additional resources for assistance.
Nash Community College Small Business Wellness Clinic will help small businesses affected by
COVID-19, assess the health of their business and develop a plan to address current issues.
The City of Rocky Mount invites all interested and eligible small businesses with twenty-five or fewer employees, based in the City of Rocky Mount to apply for CARES Act CDBG-CV funding to assist in the preparation, prevention and response to coronavirus.
We would like to say thank you to all those who support our downtown area and who have seeded into this program to really help it grow. If you are interested in helping, please contact the Chamber directly so we can help you help our community!
