Deadline Extended!

Applications will be open until MAY 27, 2022

Today, many Atlanta small business communities need help adapting to COVID-19 to rise up, recover and thrive once again. Through the Resurgence Grant Fund, eligible businesses and non-profits may be awarded grants of up to $40,000 to reimburse costs incurred (after March 3, 2021) by adapting business operations in a post-COVID environment. Through this program, Invest Atlanta seeks to lessen the negative financial impact to businesses and cover costs associated with operating safely during the pandemic.

How To Apply

Applications will be reviewed by an independent committee at the end of the application period. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed and will not be given consideration. An incomplete application is considered to be one that has not uploaded all requested documents or answered all required questions.
