Support for Atlanta Businesses
Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms authorized the creation of the CoA Recovery Fund to support businesses and facilities that were adversely impacted during otherwise peaceful demonstrations in response to recent incidents highlighting systemic racism in American society.
The purpose of the fund is to help businesses quickly address damages so they can continue to serve residents and communities with needed amenities and services. The fund will also serve to promote trade, industry, and commerce and will protect the much-needed jobs of hard-working citizens.
A business is eligible for a reimbursable grant up to $10,000 if it:
The funds can be used to reimburse the insurance deductible of a business or if the damage is less than the deductible, the funds can be used to reimburse the direct cost of damage on physical property (e.g.,window repair).
Phase 1 – Funding will be prioritized to “micro enterprises” as defined as 1-9 employees and annual revenues of $300,000 or less.
Additional details about the program and eligibilty information are included in the Program Overview availabe below.
